Matana Roberts – All Is Written

I don’t know how I lived until now without having known about Matana Roberts!

Matana is a saxophone player, a clarinet player, and a vocalist from Chicago. She is one of the most admirable artists nowadays – set off to record 12 albums about roots of America, its stories and histories. This year she released the critically lauded 3rd album “COIN COIN Chapter Three: river run thee” which exhibits a more layered soundscape. All Is Written is its first track. It’s also her very first album (of the series) she’s done entirely solo – hence the multi-layered effects!
