Aquiles Navarro & Tcheser Holmes releasing improvised free jazz album with International Anthem





Weaving samples, field recordings, and poetry through acoustic improvisations.

Improvisational trumpet-and-percussion duo Aquiles Navarro and Tcheser Holmes are releasing a new album, titled Heritage of the Invisible II, via International Anthem this October.

Following sessions towards the end of 2019, Navarro and Holmes began layering field recordings with samples and sounds from Juno 106 and Moog Grandmother synths and incorporating contributions from poets and other musicians over their acoustic improvisations.

Coinciding with the announcement, the duo have shared new track and video ‘Pueblo’, described by Navarro as “ a celebration of who we are, where we come from.”

Heritage of the Invisible II follows Navarro and Holmes’ last album as part of Irreversible Entanglements, Who Sent You?, released in March via International Anthem / Don Giovanni Records.
