Diggin’ This: Moor Mother ft Melanie Charles – “Woody Shaw” (ANTI- Records)
In honor of the legendary jazz trumpeter.
Philadelphia poet, rapper, and experimental musician Camae Ayewa aka Moor Mother has teamed up with Swedish producer Olof Melander to create an album of Aweya’s poetry that celebrates the life and work of a number of influential jazz and blues mainstays.
“Woody Shaw” is the first single to be issued from the project. It’s a futurist groove interlocked with pumice bass tones that dances through your headphones while Melanie Charles assists in singing that growing, glowing refrain: “Woody Shaw, elevator out of town…”

“Woody Shaw” is taken from Moor Mother‘s new album, Jazz Codes, released July 1 via ANTI- Records.
