Moor Mother has revealed details of her next album, Jazz Codes.

The follow-up to Black Encyclopedia Of The Air, which was released in September 2021, Jazz Codes takes in 21 tracks and an extensive cast of collaborators that includes Mary Lattimore, Nicole Mitchell, Melanie Charles, Wolf Weston, YUNGMORPHEUS and the jazz ensemble which Moor Mother is a member of, Irreversible Entanglements. Watch a video for the Melanie Charles-featuring lead track 'WOODY SHAW' above.

Jazz Codes takes its name from a book of poems written in honour of jazz and blues icons like Woody Shaw, Amina Claudine Myers and Mary Lou Williams. The record is said to use poetry and free jazz as its starting point.
