Tuesday 30th November

Idris Ackamoor, a veteran of Cecil Taylor’s Black Music Ensemble, is one of those cosmic jazz warriors who, like Pharoah Sanders and Marshall Allen, simply never stopped. But it’s also not incongruous to count him as part of the current revival.

In 2016, the inspirational Ackamoor reformed his ‘70s Afro-jazz outfit the Pyramids to release the acclaimed album We Be All Africans on Strut.

The Pyramids’ signature sound combines spiritual jazz with a heavy dose of Frafra music from Northern Ghana. Between these new black Atlantic collaborations and the buzz around We Be All Africans, it’s arguable that Ackamoor’s star has never shone brighter than right now.
