While a lot of musicians and record labels love to imagine that they can't be defined by a genre, few can actually make that leap. Chicago's Irreversible Entanglements and their record label International Anthem are testing freedoms and what it truly means to be, as IA co-founder Scott McNiece puts it, "Boundary-defying."

In the hands of this fast-rising quintet, limitless liberty means dynamic commentary set over a brassy, rhythmically powerful skronk-and-groove accompaniment. While jazz this free often turns into chaotic, unlistenable noodling, Keir Neuringer (saxophone), Aquiles Navarro (trumpet), Luke Stewart (double bass), Tcheser Holmes (drums, congas) and Camae Ayewa (aka Moor Mother; voice, texts) are devoted to keeping it instrumentally muscular and surprisingly structured. The strengths here are many — MC/poet Ayewa is a compelling force, passionate and convincing. Holmes generates complex rhythms and the two horns know how to play at and with each other in coercive, burning fashion.

The title track is a furious sound storm — insistent, exploratory sax lines and brash trumpet blasts swarm over splashes of cymbals, mad drumming and spry bass lines. Ayewa's words in the same track veer from desperate ire to a fearful whisper while telling a tale of police violence: "What are you doing here in my home, in my neighborhood, who sent you?/What did they tell you?/To patrol, oversee, redeem, crucify?/Did they teach you to walk around with your finger on the trigger?" An agile bass figure reminiscent of Paul Chambers' touch powers the Latin-flavored "Bread Out of Stone." And "No Más," the most exuberant track, with its churning bass, interlaced horns, and affirmation that we are not "disconnected reflections of a source," is all funky joy. A bracing, angular match of ambition and talent. © Robert Baird / Qobuz

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus

What a difference 50 years can make! By early 1969 rock music had become a leading cultural force: The Who had just recorded Tommy; Cream packed Royal Albert Hall for their farewell concert; Janis Joplin became a solo act; Led Zeppelin performed for the first time. And after four months of recording, The Beatles (aka The White Album) was out and climbing the charts. To understate the obvious, rock music was awash in talent and standards were high.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.

Americana, America Through its Roots

The title may sound like a nebulous marketing ploy, and yet for about twenty years, Americana had been summarizing this blend of rock, country, blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues. And like in every big family, you’ll find almost every type of person: the rebellious daughter, the cultivated uncle, the agitated father, the driven cousin, etc.
