LOCKS, DAMON & BLACK MONUMENT ENSEMBLE
WHERE FUTURE UNFOLDS
International Anthem
Chicago's improvisational jazz scene has flourished in the last few years - in large part due to its advocacy on Int'l Anthem, a Chicago-based label responsible for carrying the scene's prominent releases and giving them a wider exposure outside of the city. As improvisation, performance is perhaps THE central element to this music. Artists such as MAKAYA McCRAVEN, JAIMIE BRANCH, and IRREVERSIBLE ENTANGLEMENTS rely on the energy of the stage and the symbiotic relationship between the performer and audience to create their albums. This has never more clear than here, on DAMON LOCKS' project "Where Future Unfolds". Starting as a sound collage with Civil Rights Era speeches and a drum machine, it has expanded to include the BLACK MONUMENT ENSEMBLE of musicians, choir singers and dancers, all in expression of the struggle for racial and class empowerment, all unified by time. Recorded at Garfield Park Conservatory during their debut performance, "Where Future Unfolds" is soul-jazz theater. It's dizzying, free and yet tied seamlessly together by its central theme. CANNOT BE MORE RECOMMENDED!!!
