Spiritual jazz meets house music via Chicago.
Theaster Gates’ second release on his Black Madonna Press label in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, Furthermore picks up where 2018’s Black Madonna EP left off, exploring the artist’s Chicago heritage by nodding to both the city’s independent jazz and house music traditions.
Featuring The Black Monks – a band assembled by Gates from Chicago’s finest jazz musicians and improvisors – Furthermore was recorded live at the Sprengel Museum, Hannover in 2018.
