Brothers Zaccai and Luques Curtis are back with a new album commissioned by Chamber Music America’s New Jazz Works. Algorithm, coming August 23rd to the brothers’ own Truth Revolution Records, builds upon The Curtis Brothers Band’s 2012 debut Completion of Proof, drawing inspiration equally from mathematical concepts as well as from some of the brothers’ pivotal mentors over the years. In a nod to Art Blakey, the record features three esteemed Jazz Messengers alumni, namely trumpeter Brian Lynch, saxophonist Donald Harrison and drummer Ralph Peterson, who have all three proved key contributors to the duo’s musical development, from Harrison offering them their first gig in a touring band, to Lynch’s undeniable support of Truth Revolution Records, by way of Peterson’s duel record label release TriAngular III, released on Truth Revolution Records and Peterson’s Onyx Production Music Label.
We are honored to premiere today “Three Points and a Sphere” from The Curtis Brothers’ new album, Algorithm, inspired by the musicians’ time in Hartford, Connecticut, and paying homage to Jackie and Dollie McLean as well as The Artists Collective, one of several schools which they attended in their youth.
Algorithm, the new album by The Curtis Brothers featuring Brian Lynch, Donald Harrison and Ralph Peterson drops August 23rd via Truth Revolution Records. You can pre-order it on Bandcamp.
