Recording: Matana Roberts

Artist: Matana Roberts

Song: unknown*

Recorded at The Music Gallery, June 22, 2013.

Matana Roberts - unknown

Full review to follow. I felt a bit bad pitching this show to people on the basis of Roberts' association with Constellation Records (who put out one of her albums) and her having played with the likes of GY!BE, when I discovered, as she played, that there was so much more. Tapping into the deep river of traditions, you could feel Duke Ellington and Steve Lacey in the air during her freedom jams.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
