Joe Chambers brings together global talent on Dance Kobina
The album presents Chambers originals including Gazelle Suite, Ruth and Caravanserai, as well as interpretations of pieces by Vial, Kurt Weill, Joe Henderson and Karl Ratzer.
Dance Kobina is Chambers’ third release for Blue Note Records, and it serves as a sonic complement to 2021’s Samba de Maracatu.
In the mid- to late-1960s, Chambers played drums on some of the decade’s most progressive albums by artists such as Bobby Hutcherson, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Sam Rivers, Andrew Hill and Donald Byrd. He’s since established himself as an icon in his own right, recording 16 albums as a leader.
Here’s the track listing:
- This Is New
- Dance Kobina
- City of Saints
- Gazelle Suite
- Power to the People
- Moon Dancer
Joe Chambers’ Dance Kobina is out Feb. 3, 2023, via Blue Note.
