Matana Roberts- Coin Coin Chapter Four: Memphis


For fans of Albert Ayler, Alice Coltrane, Irreversible Entanglements, Moor Mother, Cecil Taylor and Sun Ra. Matana Roberts returns with the fourth chapter of her extraordinary Coin Coin series – a project that has deservedly garnered the highest praise and widespread critical acclaim for its fierce aesthetic originality and unflinching narrative power. The first three Coin Coin albums, issued from 2011-2015, charted diverse pathways of avant modern composition – Roberts calls it “panoramic sound quilting” – and ranged sequentially from large band to sextet to solo, unified by Roberts’ archival and often deeply personal research into legacies of the American slave trade and ancestries of American identity / experience.
