Dynamic saxophone conceptualist Matana Roberts celebrates the release of Mississippi Moonchile, the latest chapter in her sweeping narrative epic, Coin Coin, with help from pianist Shoko Nagai, trumpeter Jason Palmer, bassist Thomson Kneeland, vocalist Jeremiah Abiah and drummer Mike Pride. Expect a stirring blend of fiesty avant-jazz, songful postbop and operatic chant.
