Analysis Paralysis

Analysis Paralysis returns for 2020 and we're broadcasting live on Triple R (rrr.org.au) for the next month. What does this mean? Just a slight shake up from the standard formula from previous episodes, you'll be hearing a tweaked version of what originally went to air on RRR, but jazzed up with extra goodness. Think of this as the director's cut of the show. AP will return to its standard format in February 2020. This week The AP team plunder the depths of the critically acclaimed 'Magdalene' by UK artist FKA Twigs and turn their gaze toward the freeform jazz of Matana Roberts' 'Coin Coin: Chapter Four'.

Saxophonist Matana Roberts Carves Out Her Own Musical Space


Composer, saxophonist, and mixed media artist Matana Roberts presents her latest in the multi-chapter work Coin Coin project which documents the African-American cultural and historical experience. “Memphis,” which is chapter four, mixes jazz, blues, traditional songs, free improv, and Afro-futurism into a heavy sonic quilt of “21st century liberation music.” (Matana Roberts calls her approach “panoramic sound quilting.”) She "speaks memory," and "sings an American survival" in this chapter of the coin coin bloodline (Tiny Mixtapes), set in Memphis - home of Roberts’s grandmother- and around a story of a "wo(e)man chile named Liddie." Matana Roberts and her new band featuring Hannah Marcus on guitars, fiddle, and accordion; Ryan Sawyer on percussion; and Matt Lavelle on trumpet and bass clarinet, perform in-studio. - Caryn Havlik Watch the session here:
