أحمد [Ahmed]

Pat Thomas (piano), Seymour Wright (alto saxophone), Antonin Gerbal (drums), Joel Grip (double bass).
Excavating and re-inhabiting the notes and visions of NYC theorist, educator, composer and musician Ahmed Abdul-Malik (1927-1993), the quartet creates music of heavy rhythm, repetition and syncopation set deep in an understanding of jazz and the obscure depths of its history. Across their releases, including forthcoming double LP 'Wood Blues' (Astral Spirits, 2024), أحمد [Ahmed] work and rework Abdul-Malik's music to create stamping, swinging, relentlessly propulsive tunes where profundity and physicality root right back to ecstatic feeling. Music for heads and feet.
