Hello folks, good news for all free jazz, spoken word and improvised music lovers. Composer saxophonist and visual artist Matana Roberts will release the latest instalment in their Coin Coin series.
The forthcoming record marks the fifth chapter in the series, which began in 2011 with Chapter One. Roberts will unleash Coin Coin Chapter Five: In the garden… into the world on 29th September. It will be Roberts’ first album since 2019’s Coin Coin Chapter Four: Memphis. As a first taste, they have shared the three-song suite that opens the album. Listen to “we said” / “different rings” / “unbenkownst” below.
As a response to the current abortion laws in the US, Roberts presents the story of a woman who died from an illegal abortion.
We at Twistedsoul are definitely looking forward to hearing more music from the album, but for now, enjoy the trio of tracks.
