No Room For Squares Session 17 – The George Russell Sextet – Electronic Sonata For Souls Loved by Nature (1980)

June 20 @ 18 h 30 min - 23 h 30 min

For this  17th session, we will listen to “Electronic Sonata For Souls Loved by Nature” of George Russell, an album by American jazz composer, pianist, arranger and theorist George Russell.

‘’In the Cybernetic Age, jazz must move through the centre of the cyclone, implode and be reassembled as electromagnetic dub. Instead of invoking jazz as an art, a beautiful soul which defies the military industrial complex, Russell technologizes jazz until it becomes an art-industrial complex.’

(Kodwo Eshun, More Brilliant Than The Sun)
