About this item

Woke rhythms and high-spirited grooves from the vaults of two seminal Italian jazz labels focusing on the period between the 70s and 80s, intensely curated by fellow Italian, record collector, DJ and producer Khalab.

Hyperituals is a philological investigation that deeply delves into the possibilities of sound, rhythm, remix, and endless sampling. Inspiring listening, interpretation, and reinterpretation.

This volume is dedicated to the catalogue of the Italian Black Saint. Thanks to a constant, cutting-edge, and meticulous commitment, Black Saint & Soul Note established themself as two of the most important imprints for international jazz. They always placed the artists, their visions, and their music at the center, giving them total freedom of creative expression. By combining jazz tradition with the political vanguard sentiment of the time, the two labels were able to press and produce more than five hundred records, many of which are by some of the brightest names in creative jazz or the 'avant-garde' of the era.

Curated by Khalab, the selection focuses on rhythms, grooves, and Afrocentric traditions - moments in which the rhythmic aspect is powerfully explicit, with others in which the kinetic aspect dialogues on different levels with African American cultural contexts.

Includes: Archie Shepp, Sun Ra Arkestra, Muhal Richard Abrams, Joseph Jarman and Don Moye & more.
