Combining street culture, post-Coltrane heritage and the new Chicago scene, Irreversible Entanglements shapes a frontal and politically non-neutral music. Combined with Moor Mother's incandescent verve, full of rage and afrofuturism, this music becomes burning. An inextricable mounting where the "liberation-oriented free collective jazz" plasters an energy that responds to social and police violence, a visceral poetry where every word is thrown to repaint the official, and voluntarily amnesiac, history of Black Americans’ path. And the Chicago combo to pick things up where the poets Amiri Baraka, Ted Joans or Jayne Cortez left them, like so many buoys "to survive the coming flood".

MARC RIBOT - guitar, vocals | JAY RODRIGUEZ - saxophone, flute | NICK DUNSTON - double-bass | CHAD TAYLOR - drums, Mbira, electronics

In his current negotiations with the American Democratic Joint-Union, Marc Ribot states the virtue of the tangent: "I knew it since the election of Donald Trump: I was not going to be a Wilhelm Furtwangler of the downtown scene... no way." Ways, however, he opened up indeed as soon as he appeared on the New York 80's scene and then in an insolent and sinusoidal discography where John Zorn, Bashung, Tom Waits or Jim Jarmusch meet in bulk. Aware that to make political music, you have to reconcile yourself and common freedom, Marc Ribot performs his Songs of Resistance. Wrestling songs, militant anthems, love songs and free improvisations where the words liberty and libertarian dance as unifying cousins.
