Moor Mother: "WE GOT THE JAZZ (feat. Kyle Kidd, Keir Neuringer & Aquiles Navarro)"
A well-designed lyric video surfaced for Camae Ayewa's (a.k.a. Moor Mother) "We Got The Jazz," a new single featured in her upcoming release Jazz Codes Deluxe, which is an enhanced digital version of 2022's excellent Jazz Codes.
From the desk of Stereo Sanctity:
“‘We Got The Jazz’ is me thinking about how mediocre a lot of popular music is, about its capitalistic structures and how those placements are bought and paid for,” Ayewa said of the song’s meaning. “I'm speaking about the whitewashing of who's allowed to participate in jazz, who is allowed to participate in poetry, and asking where the room for innovation is, now and in the future. It’s also me thinking about my jazz band, Irreversible Entanglements, and how we’ve toured the world destroying stages, uplifting audiences, and inspiring everyone on the jazz scene with or without recognition. I'm also speaking about my own influence on the culture.”
Jazz Codes Deluxe will be released 5/19/23 via ANTI-.
