Ambrose Akinmusire shared a new song “Mr Roscoe (consider the simultaneous)” promoting his new album “On the Tender Spot of Every Calloused Moment” (Blue Note Records). The title of song references to jazz saxophonist and the key figure in avant-garde jazz Roscoe Mitchell, who has played with Akinmusire in duo and quartet settings. Mitchell is known for cofounding the Art Ensemble of Chicago and the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM)

Akinmusire recorded “On the Tender Spot of Every Calloused Moment” in a quartet with his longtime bandmates: pianist Sam Harris, bassist Harish Raghavan, and drummer Justin Brown.

Akinmusire described his new record as a blues album, partially thanks to conversations he has had with veteran saxophonist Archie Shepp.

“We’ve had conversations where I ask Archie: What is the blues? What does that mean in 2020? Like, my blues as Ambrose Akinmusire shouldn’t sound the same as Archie’s blues, and that shouldn’t sound the same as Bobby Bland or BB King. That’s what this album to me is trying to figure out,” he said. “I’m trying to really put [the feeling of blues] in my music, in the same way as these masters.”
