£25.99 – 1xLP, Indies Exclusive, Limited Gold and Yellow Galaxy Vinyl

£21.99 – 1xLP, Standard Edition Vinyl

Jazz Codes uses free jazz as a starting point but the collection continues the recent turn in Moor Mother’s multifaceted catalog toward more melody, moresinging voices, more choruses, more complexity. In its warm, densely layered course through jazz, blues, soul, hip- hop, and other Black classical traditions,Jazz Codes sets the ear blissfully adrift and unhitches the mind from habit.Through her work, Ayewa illuminates the principles of her multidisciplinary collaborative practice Black Quantum Futurism, a theoretical framework forperceiving and adjusting reality through art, writing, music, and performance,informed by historical Black ontologies.

The songwriter, composer, vocalist, poet,and educator Camae Ayewa spent years organizing and performing inPhiladelphia’s underground music community before moving to Los Angeles toteach composition at the University of Southern California’s Thornton School ofMusic. She released her debut album as Moor Mother, Fetish Bones, in 2016, and has since put out an abundance of acclaimed music, both as a solo artist and incollaboration with other musicians who share her drive to dig up the untold.
