Italian-American sextet Ghost Horse's debut record Trojan will be released on October 18th, 2019 as a double LP by groundbreaking Chicago-based underground electronic label Mathematics Recordings and on CD by Auand, Italy's most important contemporary jazz label.

Sprouting from a rich humus of Latin and African polyrhythms, Ghost Horse generates a dark and mysterious ecosystem, digesting, decomposing and recombining elements of free jazz, hip hop, blues and loop music. The result is something fascinating but quietly menacing, pulsing and breathing with the visceral force of nature reclaiming abandoned structures.

Trojan's ten original compositions are conceived as a series of complex musical conflicts, their titles inspired by historical struggles for land and water rights during European and U.S. colonisation and territorial expansion in North America. These topics remain tragically relevant in the midst of a global dialog centered around resource exploitation, mass migration, demographic transformations and economic and digital warfare, all superimposed over the looming threat of catastrophic environmental collapse.

Ghost Horse is a sextet expansion of avant-jazz trio Hobby Horse, which has been breaking trail in Italy for ten years, at the forefront of a creative renewal in the national jazz scene which is beginning to receive well-deserved recognition worldwide. Their strikingly original approach to warping and recombining musical languages is apparent on 2018's Helm (Auand/Rous Records), resulting in a long list of 'Best of 2018' mentions from the likes of Allaboutjazz and the New York City Jazz Record. – On Bandcamp
