"I was myself, trapped, lost in a melody, a thousand notes on fire, and I wondered if I was jazz, 'cause I must be." -Camae Ayewa a/k/a Moor Mother
Irreversible Entanglements is a politically-driven, collaborative free jazz project comprised of members from Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington, D.C.

With shared politics and roots in free jazz and spoken word traditions, Irreversible Entanglements recorded in August 2015 (Ayewa, Neuringer, Stewart, Holmes, and trumpeter Aquiles Navarro.
