Black Jazz Consortium - Evolution Of Light Named in Afropunk's Best Dance Music 2019

Fred P's latest record as Black Jazz Consortium, 'Evolution Of Light', has been named alongside rRoxymore, Teebs, Wajeed, and more, as one of Afropunk's top releases of the year: "Recently the Queens-born, Berlin-based artist Fred Peterkin (often known as P) rebooted his Black Jazz Consortium alias to deliver Evolution of Light, an album heavily influenced by the music and culture of South America. Fred P interprets Latin and Brazilian music through his own unique lens — intense chord progressions that link modal pathways of connectedness between jazz, house, funk, and techno: All are sub-genres of soul when executed with a certain Peterkin instinct. It is a beguiling and vivid undertaking. Using acoustic and electric guitars, masterful bass playing, vocal scat-singing, exquisite piano chords, and heavy kick drums, Peterkin, luckily for us, shows his love for Brazilian jazz-funk pioneers."
