Aquiles Navarro and Tcheser Holmes—members of the free jazz collective Irreversible Entanglements—have released their new album, Heritage of the Invisible II, which explores their Afro-Caribbean roots.
The trumpet-and-percussion-duo have performed together as a duo since 2014; in fact, the formation of Irreversible Entanglements stemmed from a 2015 gig they played alongside the trio of to-be-bandmates Moor Mother, Keir Neuringer and Luke Stewart. The five-piece have released two studio albums as Irreversible Entanglements, the most recent being March’s Who Sent You?.
Navarro and Holmes decided to record new music as a duo in fall last year, roping in Philadelphia composer/electronic artist Madam Data, who mixed the album and supplied a remix to close out the tracklist. In September, they announced the record with “Pueblo,” which they described as a “celebration of life, the coming together of people, el pueblo.”
