FIVE-STARS IN NOVEMBER DOWNBEAT

Acclaimed trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire breaks new ground with his 4th Blue Note album Origami Harvest, a surprisingly fluid study in contrasts that pits contemporary classical wilding against deconstructed hip-hop, with bursts of left-field jazz, funk, spoken work, and soul with help from the Mivos Quartet and art-rap expatriate Kool A.D. (Das Racist), along with pianist Sam Harris, drummer Marcus Gilmore, and saxophonist Walter Smith III. The work was commissioned by the Liquid Music Series and Ecstatic Music Fest and the songs actively respond to societal divides, the way our politics hold us emotionally hostage, and the ever-growing list of black lives ended by structural racism.
