Coming out on July 1, Jazz Codes is Moor Mother's second and latest album for Anti- and a companion to her celebrated 2021 release Black Encyclopedia of the Air. Jazz Codes uses free jazz as
a starting point but the collection continues the recent turn in Moor Mother's multifaceted catalog
toward more melody, more singing voices, more choruses, more complexity. In its warm, densely
layered course through jazz, blues, soul, hip-hop, and other Black classical traditions, Jazz
Codes sets the ear blissfully adrift and unhitches the mind from habit. Through her work, Ayewa
illuminates the principles of her multidisciplinary collaborative practice Black Quantum Futurism, a theoretical framework for perceiving and adjusting reality through art, writing, music, and
performance, informed by historical Black ontologies.The songwriter, composer, vocalist, poet,
and educator Camae Ayewa spent years organizing and performing in Philadelphia's underground
music community before moving to Los Angeles to teach composition at the University of Southern
California's Thornton School of Music. She released her debut album as Moor Mother, Fetish
Bones, in 2016, and has since put out an abundance of acclaimed music, both as a solo artist and
in collaboration with other musicians who share her drive to dig up the untold. She has performed
and recorded with the free jazz groups Irreversible Entanglements and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and made records with billy woods, Mental Jewelry, and YATTA.
