Reflections Vol. 2: Black Decelerant – Available June 21, 2024

For the second volume of Reflections, Black Decelerant, the duo of Khari Lucas, aka Contour, and Omari Jazz, explore improvisational jazz traditions through contemporary tone and texture, fostering sonic meditations on themes of Black being and nonbeing, life and mourning, expansion and limitation, and the individual and collective.

Today we share “two,” the first offering from the self-titled album, with a video directed by Neil Nourigat. The vinyl edition of Black Decelerant is available for pre-order ahead of its Friday, June 21 release date, alongside a Japanese import CD edition arrives via Plancha.
