Esto lo estoy tocando mañana #20 - Matana Roberts (2011)

Matana Roberts grew up in Chicago hearing stories about her extended family, from its roots in Louisiana and Mississippi, to its participation in the Great Migration north early in the 20th century. The stories caused her to develop a deep love of history and a desire to somehow turn that into music.

Roberts has worked as a jazz saxophonist for more than 15 years, first in her native Chicago, and for the past decade, in New York. She's released several albums during this time, but on a brand new recording she's looking for something much more personal, stylistically splintered and true to her own life experiences.
