Adam Rudolph

Idioma disponível: inglês
Adam Rudolph is a composer, producer, and percussionist, known for his adventurous, experimental brand of post-bop jazz and world fusion. Since the 1980s he has issued more than two-dozen recordings and performed globally. He leads Adam Rudolph's Moving Pictures, Hu: Vibrational percussion group, and Go: Organic Orchestra, an 18- to 54-piece group for which he has developed an original music notation and conducting system. Along with kora virtuoso Foday Musa Suso, he co-founded the Mandingo Griot Society to pioneer the world fusion genre. In 1987, he appeared on Suso's Jazz Africa. Beginning in the '90s, Rudolph closely collaborated with composer and multi-instrumentalist Yusef Lateef; they issued 15 albums together. After creating the Meta label in 1997, Rudolph, Hamid Drake, and Pharoah Sanders issued Spirits in 2000. Go: Organic Orchestra's debut Web of Light appeared in 2002. Between 2002 and 2006, he cut three offerings with Hu Vibrational. Rudolph also recorded a series of duo and trio collaborations with several artists including Wadada Leo Smith and Omar Sosa. In 2015, Go: Organic cut Turning Towards the Light ‎for Cuneiform. In 2018, Rudolph, saxophonist David Liebman, and drummer Tatsuya Nakatani issued The Unknowable for RareNoise, and followed it a year later with Chi with Drake replacing Nakatani. In 2022, Rudolph again joined Liebman (and percussionist Tyshawn Sorey) for the live trio album New Now. Also that year, he and saxophonist Bennie Maupin collaborated on Symphonic Tone Poem for Brother Yusef released on Strut. Rudolph was born in Chicago in 1955, and as a teen was mentored by the likes of Don Cherry, Fred Anderson, and Maulawi Nururdin. After receiving a self-designed undergraduate degree in ethnomusicology from Oberlin College, Rudolph went on to earn his M.F.A. from the California Institute of the Arts; in 1977 he traveled to Ghana and met the famed griot Foday Musa Suso, and a year later they reunited in Chicago to form the Mandingo Griot Society, pioneering a fusion of traditional African music with jazz and R&B. Rudolph also spent 15 years studying North Indian tabla drums under the renowned Pandit Taranath Rao, and collaborating with L. Shankar and Hassan Hakmoun. His extensive research throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa allowed Rudolph to master a vast range of percussion instruments including the congas, djembe, bendir, dumbek, tabla, talking drum, kalimba, and udu; in addition to appearing on sessions by everyone from Herbie Hancock to Jon Hassell to Shadowfax, he collaborated extensively with Yusef Lateef from 1988 onward. Rudolph debuted his own group, Moving Pictures, with a self-titled 1992 LP; in 1995 he premiered his first opera, The Dreamer. In 2002, Rudolph's Go: Organic Orchestra released Web of Light, and a few months later, Go: Organic Orchestra: 1 on Meta. The acclaim from jazz, new music, and world music critics and DJs was almost universal. The following year, two of the group's live West Coast performances -- both collaborations with Lateef -- were captured for the double-length In the Garden. Also during the early 21st century, Rudolph became a member of Build an Ark in Los Angeles, a multi-generational collective of musicians who included Carlos Niño, Dwight Trible, Dexter Story, Phil Ranelin, and a dozen others. They issued two fine albums, 2004's Peace with Every Step and 2007's Dawn. Rudolph also collaborated with Leni Stern on her 2007 effort Africa. Dream Garden followed in 2008. In 2010 Rudolph issued two more recordings on Meta: Yèyí, with reed master and multi-instrumentalist Ralph Jones, and Towards the Unknown with composer and multi-instrumentalist Lateef (although on the latter disc, Lateef received top billing). Two years later, Merely a Traveler on the Cosmic Path with Jones appeared on Meta, followed by Go: Organic Orchestra's Sonic Mandala and Voice Prints with Lateef, Roscoe Mitchell, and Douglas R. Ewart. It was Lateef's final recording. That year also marked the release of Good Medicine, a collaboration with Defunkt leader and trombonist Joseph Bowie under the name Ig Bo Duet. In 2015, Rudolph delivered Turning Towards the Light for Cuneiform with the Go: Organic Guitar Orchestra, featuring ten guitarists and a bassist. Among them were Rez Abbasi, Nels Cline, Joel Harrison, David Gilmore, Miles Okazaki, and Marvin Sewell. In 2017, a solo set entitled Morphic Resonances appeared on Meta showcasing the percussionist with a string quartet and the chamber group Kammeratorkestret Ensemble, as well as in various duos and trios. A year later, Rudolph worked with saxophonist Dave Liebman and percussionist/electronicist Tatsuya Nakatani for RareNoise on the album The Unknowable, and cut Karuna (Compassion) with old friends Jones and Drake. The drummer and percussionist worked with Liebman for 2019's Chi. That same year, Rudolph issued the double-length Ragmala, a 54-musician collaboration between Go: Organic Orchestra and the celebrated Indian fusion group Brooklyn Raga Massive, on which the composer/percussionist displayed his highly developed system of conducting for improvisers. The following year, the Karuna Trio -- Rudolph, Jones, and Drake -- issued Imaginary Archipelago on Meta. Back in 2020, Claremont, California's Angel City Jazz Festival commissioned Rudolph and saxophonist Bennie Maupin to create an original work to commemorate Lateef's 100th birthday. They composed and recorded the five-movement, Symphonic Tone Poem for Brother Yusef in response. Issued by Strut in June 2022, the set created a magical, meditative path combining electronics, saxophones, clarinets, and voices with a wide variety of percussion instruments. He again joined Liebman, as well as fellow percussionist Tyshawn Sorey, for the 2022 trio album, New Now, recorded live at the Jazz Gallery in New York.
