Mike Ladd : Negrophilia
[ the blue series ]

   $14.98      
Pre-order - will be shipped on the release date of February 8, 2005
Inspired in part, by Petrine Archer-Straw's book, Negrophilia, Mike Ladd has combined his own thoughts and visions with renowned drummer Guillermo E. Brown and pianist Vijay Iyer, who returns to work with Ladd on the heels of last years critically acclaimed In What Language? record. What emerges is a low down, but high minded sound excursion. Melding natural and synthetic sound, this album engages the listener with the urgency of futurism, while also hearkening to a not-too distant past.

The goal of this record is to serve as an organic backdrop to a digital landscape. - Mike Ladd
