CD der Woche: Christian Scott a Tunde Adjuah: Ruler Rebel

‚Rule Rebel‘ was für ein Titel !

Also ein Regelbrecher … Eine bessere Bezeichnung gibt es gar nicht, für diesen unglaublichen Musiker. Schon „Stretch Music“ war ein wegweisendes Album und das hier … Hört selbst !!!

Ruler Rebel is the first in a three-album series collectively titled The Centennial Trilogy.

The series is, at its core, a sobering re-evaluation of the social political realities of the world through sound. It speaks to a litany of issues that continue to plague our collective experiences. Slavery in America via the Prison Industrial Complex, Food Insecurity, Xenophobia, Immigration, Climate Change, Sexual Orientation, Gender Equality, Fascism and the return of the Demagogue.

The first release in the trilogy, Ruler Rebel, vividly depicts Adjuah’s new vision and sound – revealing Adjuah to the listener in a way never heard before via a completely new production methodology that Stretches Trap Music with West African and New Orleanian Afro-Native American styles.

jazzman2017 aTunde Adjuah has once again pushed the boundaries of jazz or „stretch music“ to the next level. Incorporating more of the elements of trap music and actually creating a sound that is totally original. The jazz purist may reject this, but those who are willing to listen with an open mind and fresh ears will hear the genius of what Christian Scott has created. Scott is a man of integrity using his gift and celebrity to tackle social issues. This is the beginning of a Grammy-worthy collection.

Moni Continuing to push the music forward. Stretch Music was probably my most-played album last year and this builds on that. So good. Favorite track: New Orleanian Love Song II [X. aTunde Adjuah Remix].
