"Jazz Codes" is Moor Mother's second and latest album for Anti- and a companion to her celebrated 2021 release "Black Encyclopedia of the Air".

"Jazz Codes" uses free jazz as a starting point but the collection continues the recent turn in Moor Mother's multifaceted catalog toward more melody, more singing voices, more choruses, more complexity.

In its warm, densely layered course through jazz, blues, soul, hip-hop, and other Black classical traditions, "Jazz Codes" sets the ear blissfully adrift and unhitches the mind from habit.

Through her work, Camae Ayewa illuminates the principles of her multidisciplinary collaborative practice Black Quantum Futurism, a theoretical framework for perceiving and adjusting reality through art, writing, music, and performance, informed by historical Black ontologies. Ayewa has performed and recorded with the free jazz groups Irreversible Entanglements and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and made records with billy woods, Mental Jewelry, and YATTA.
