Whether as a sideman for Kenny Dorham and Joe Henderson, or as the bandleader for Nina Simone, the gifted Weldon Irvine was always proven to be one of the most vital jazz musicians America has ever produced. But his finest works were his brilliant solo endeavours in the 1970s, which cemented Irvine as one of jazz-funk’s principal protagonists. 

Most notably, his 1973 LP Time Capsule, released under his own label Nodlew Music, was Irvine’s proudest achievement. As the composer, arranger, lyricist, vocalist, pianist and organist for Time Capsule - Irvine applied his considerable multidisciplinary talents to craft a sonic diary documenting the political and social currents of the era. With assistance from his sublime ensemble, Irvine’s blend of soul, jazz, funk and spoken word was as sensational as it was searing.
