Georgia Anne Muldrow is back with her solo jazz project, Jyoti.

Mama, You Can Bet! comes after two previous Jyoti records, Denderah and Ocotea. Unlike these earlier Jyoti records, Mama, You Can Bet! contains tracks with vocals from Muldrow, including the newly-released single, “This Walk.” The album’s only guest musician is Muldrow’s long-time friend and saxophonist Lakeica Benjamin, on “Ra’s Noise.”

The album features two Charlie Mingus compositions that Muldrow remixed for the album, namely “Bemoanable Lady Geemix” and “Fabus Foo Geemix,” both of which were commissioned by Jason Moran and The Kennedy Center in 2017 for a live performance called “Muldrow Meets Mingus.”

Last year, Muldrow teamed up with Dudley Perkins for Black Love & War. Her last solo album under her birth name came in 2018 with Overload.
