Cobblestone Jazz Returns to IIWII on Upcoming 12″
Mathew Jonson's experimental trio is back on the label where it started.
Cobblestone Jazz, the acclaimed Canadian futuristic jazz ensemble staffed by Mathew Jonson, Danuel Tate, and Tyger Dhula, released three EPs on IIWII (a.k.a. Itiswhatitis) in the early and middle ’00s. Since then, the outfit has released material almost exclusively via Wagon Repair, but with Jonson having taken over IIWII a couple of years back, the group are now poised to return to the imprint with a 12″ by the name of Northern Lights. An expansive two-tracker that clocks in at nearly 25 minutes, it is the product of recordings that were apparently “done in one pass over a three-day period in 2013, and edits were culled this past winter.” No previews are currently available for the 12″, but the upcoming record’s artwork and tracklist have been included below ahead of its April 27 release date.
