3 Abdullah Ibrahim


Recommended Posts

This sounds very interesting... A sample is up on Bandcamp. I assume Gearbox is a legit company?


Taken from Abdullah Ibrahim’s summer 2023 sold-out headline date at London’s Barbican Centre, the new album “3” follows suit and is spread across two performances – the first is recorded without an audience ahead of the concert straight to analogue on a 1” Scully tape machine, which had previously been used by Elvis at the famous Memphis-based Sun Studios.

The second recording is taken from the evening’s performance itself with Ibrahim performing in a unique trio which includes Cleave Guyton (flute, piccolo, saxophone) who has performed alongside the likes of Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie, and Joe Henderson, as well as lauded bassist and cellist Noah Jackson, both of which are members of EKAYA and featured on Ibrahim’s Top 3 Billboard Jazz album “The Balance”

Don’t know why people doubt this is a legit label. Some simple research on the web proves it is. Plus as some board members stated: there’s a Tolliver, a Cookers and a few Abdullah Ibrahim’s released on it. Plus 2: recent music is still protected under EU law. Gearbox would not be able to put out illegal music by living artists and sell them trough all original channels.
