Jyoti – Ocotea


Georgia Anne Muldrow’s next project is unlike anything she’s ever released. Georgia Anne Muldrow’s jazz persona is named is Jyoti – a Sanscrit word meaning “light”- and it is the name given to her from “the great and masterful ancestor” Alice Coltrane who was a family friend. Her first record composed as Jyoti is entitled “Ocotea“- the name of an aromatic wood that her mother had recently given her, and she told me that burning this wood is what sparked the inspiration for creating the “free-jazz” sound of the album. Entirely instrumental, the 9 track experience draws from an ocean of influences such as Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys, Swamini Truiyasangitanada’s Monastic Trio, Charlie Mingus, Eric Dolphy, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Henry Threadgill, Sun Ra, and Stevie Wonder – to whom she dedicates a track “Stevelander”. Ocotea is a new frontier for Georgia Anne Muldrow’s sonic discoveries. “Infused with experimental synthesizers that posses a pan-tonal sensibility, and melodies that soar about with raw musicianship!”
