Ep 20 | Intervista con Idris Ackamoor

Read more
Finalmente Episodio 20. E non potremmo essere più felici di così, davvero. L'Ospite Speciale di SpinnIt 20 è infatti Idris Ackamoor. Persona bellissima, oltre che musicista eccezionale che in oltre un'ora di chiacchierata ci ha raccontato tutta la sua storia, dagli inizi a Chicago, ai viaggi in Africa con i Pyramids al rapporto con Cecil Taylor, fino all'ultima uscita Shaman!.
Un viaggio incredibile nella storia della musica jazz, dell'avanguardia e della musica Africana, che siamo davvero orgogliosi di potervi raccontare. E che troverete integrale su Youtube: questa volta con i sottotitoli in italiano! Sì, abbiamo smosso i nostri culoni pesanti.
Oltre a questo, comunque, non sarebbe un Episodio vero senza suggerimenti da parte nostra e, infatti, si parla anche dell'ultimo disco degli Ohsees. Non solo, però, perché c'è spazio anche per una di voi, Giada, che tramite la hotline ci ha suggerito 65daysofstatic, band da tenere d'occhio e che finirà nella nostra playlist SpinnIt Cares. 
Il numero della hotline, raggiungibile tramite Whatsapp e Telegram, è sempre il solito: +39 379 1449026‬. Inviateci suggerimenti, consigli, insulti, quello che vi pare. Anche perché, come avete visto, c'è il rischio di finire in Episodi con Ospiti decisamente importanti, ecco.
Sappiamo di aver latitato per un po' e nel ringraziarvi, come sempre, vi diciamo di restare sintonizzati perché ci sono diverse cose ganze in arrivo. D'altronde, ormai lo sapete, quando siamo silenti è perché qualcosa bolle in pentola. E stavolta è un bel pentolone!
Ancora una volta grazie e ricordate sempre: #spinnitcares.

Mark De Clive-Lowe & Idris Ackamoor

Play
Read more
Two artists, from different decades and veterans in their own right, presented to a new generation that's taking on bold new territories.   Mark De Clive-Lowe's musical calling began when he discovered his father's jazz records around the dawn of acid house. From earnestly composing electronic music in his native New Zealand, to making a name for himself in the clubs of London and around the world, De Clive-Lowe has racked up points working with the likes of 4-Hero, Shirley Horn, and Lauren Hill. From Broken Beat to Blue Note, he's always delivered an inspired collaboration. His recent output has both worlds merging, producing something new and sonically exciting with CHURCHLive at the Blue Whale and Heritage.   Idris Ackamoor is the type of sonic treat that one really looks forward to and savors, knowing that it's the sort of pleasure that doesn't come around very often. Over the decades Ackamoor, with or without his band the Pyramids, has selectively released a series of wonderfully crafted gems steeped in soul, psychedelia, dub, and Afrobeat that are always heavy on spirituality and social awareness. His latest, An Angel Fell, may be his greatest–its freshness and originality make him a contender in the canon of jazz notables.

Idris Ackamoor, A Musical Portrait [Mondo Jazz Ep. 43]

Play
Read more

This week we feature an exclusive interview with, and two hours of music by the bay area saxophonist Idris Ackamoor. An iconoclast like Thelonious Monk once famously said "You play what you want and let the public pick up on what you're doing. Even if it does take them 15 or 20 years". In the case of Idris Ackamoor, that took more like 35 years. But the amount of attention that his music has garnered in the past decade is a well deserved pay-back to a musician that has cultivated his own vision pursuing -- for five decades -- a personal path, fueled by a fascination for his African roots, a profound respect for Duke Ellington, Cecil Taylor and Sun Ra, as well as an admiration for the capacity of musicians like Fela Kuti and Bob Marley to balance the spiritual and the artistic with the social and political dimensions of music. All of that infused with a contagious theatrical ability that makes his performances memorable. Detailed playlist available at https://spinitron.com/radio/index.php?station=rfb&playlist=7830#here

Aquarium Drunkard: Transmissions Podcast - Idris Ackamoor & the Pyramids / Eleanor Friedberger

Play
Read more

Welcome to the fourth episode of Aquarium Drunkard’s Transmissions podcast, our recurring series of in-depth conversations and unexpected sounds.. On this week’s episode, we’re splitting our time with two unique artists.

Up first is Idris Ackamoor, leader of the intergalactic combo the Pyramids, whose new album We Be All Africans is a potent mix of soul, funk, world music, and spiritual jazz. Next, we hop in the van with singer/songwriter Eleanor Friedberger. As one-half of Fiery Furnaces, she created some of the most challenging and complex music of the 2000s, but on her latest album New View, she continues to ease into the confident, ’70s-inspired melodicism that has defined her solo albums, inspired in part by her move to upstate New York.
