Ronda by Mako Sica, Hamid Drake, released 27 July 2018 1. Dance With Waves 2. Emanation 3. The Greatest Gift 4. The Old Book 5. The Wu Wei Brilliant, inspired and somewhat surprising collaboration between Chicago's premier free-rock trio and the truly legendary percussionist, Hamid Drake, who has played with everyone from Don Cherry to Peter Brotzmann to Lee Perry. This collusion was precipitated by Matt Jackowiak, a mutual friend, who thought a merging of their sounds might make for an ecstatic explosion. This feeling became mutual after they played a show together at Constellation

Drum, Tabla, Frame Drum – Hamid Drake. Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Trumpet – Przemyslaw K. Drazek. Vocals, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Thumb Piano, Brass, Harmonica, Gong, Tom Tom – Brent J. Fuscaldo.

But the whole album has an extraordinary depth and width of sound. Even the great songs Mako Sica has had in its set for a while like 'The Old Book,' gain whole new levels of otherness here, and the material based in quartet improvisations, like 'The Wu Wei,' explores wild new territory for the band," Byron adds.

Ronda was done at two sessions, scheduled around Hamid’s insanely busy work schedule. The first was at Jamdek with Douglas Malone at the board, the second was at Electrical Audio with Taylor Hales. But the whole album has an extraordinary depth and width of sound. Ronda (named after a town in southern Spain with a famous 18th Century bridge crossing a deep gorge) is the first span connecting the disparate musical worlds of Mako Sica and Hamid Drake. Let us hope it is but the first of many.

Hamid Drake (birth name Henry Lawrence Drake) was born in 1955 in Monroe, Louisiana, and his family moved to Evanston, Illinois when he was a child, just as an older musician from Monroe named Fred Anderson also moved to Evanston, with his family. Hamid started playing with local rock and R&B bands, which eventually brought him to Fred Anderson‘s attention. Ronda (Feeding Tube co-released with Astral Spirits/Instant Classic, (2018). with Chico Freeman, George Freeman. All in the Family (Southport, (2015).
