Adrian Quesada - Jaguar Sound (Levitation Edition)

“Jaguar Sound” is the second solo album of 2022 from Adrian Quesada and with it the Black Pumas co-founder showcases another impressive side of his artistry with 12 head-nodding, cinematic instrumentals landing somewhere between Khruangbin, Lee Hazlewood and The Alchemist.

On the heels of his acclaimed “Boleros Psicodélicos” LP, Adrian Quesada releases “Jaguar Sound“. The twelve-track collection marks the second new album of the year from the Grammy-winning guitarist, producer and Black Pumas co-founder, further showcasing his singular and signature ability to build a bridge between seemingly disparate worlds of music. Steeped in a heady fusion of hip-hop, psychedelic soul and the opulent orchestration of Italian film scores from the 1970s, the LP draws upon inspirations like The Alchemist, Ennio Morricone and Nico Fidenco, as well as his own experience growing up on the border of multiple countries, cultures and languages.

Featuring a special appearance from Ikebe Shakedown, as well as harp by Mary Lattimore, Neal Francis on piano, keys from David Garza and an array of strings, horns and percussion, “Jaguar Sound” was produced, written, engineered, mixed and largely performed by Adrian Quesada.  

Recorded at Quesada’s own Electric Deluxe Studio across 2020, “Jaguar Sound” proves that he is one of the most exciting stylists in modern independent music.
