The Source is an album by drummer Tony Allen recorded in 2017 and released on the Blue Note label.

Tony Allen pays tribute to his early jazz influences: Lester Bowie, Charles Mingus, Art Blakey, Gil Evans to name a few. Together with saxophonist Yann Jankielewicz, Allen composed eleven instrumental tracks that merge afrobeat and jazz in a unique and organic way. Sometimes the album swings more towards the jazzier side, sometimes the driving groove of afrobeat takes over and sometimes the band just hits the sweet spot in-between

The Source is a work of psychedelic minimalism. This album merges avant-garde composition, free jazz drums, and eastern mysticism. The first 100 copies vinyl copies are clear green vinyl. Pearls is an album length minimal ambient composition in four parts

If Allen felt the impulse to celebrate his idol Art Blakey on his previous EP, with The Source, he offers an open-ended coda to that influence; an earthy, majestic, endlessly inventive album that caps both his own storied career and points the way toward the future.

But The Source isn’t a jazz album, per se: Allen’s drums don’t typically swing so much as jitter and jiggle, with boundless syncopated rhythms that sound like a giant squid menacing a drum kit. Nor is it an Afrobeat album, with Allen’s band comprised largely of Parisian jazz musicians plus Cameroonian guitarist Indy Dibongue; Damon Albarn makes a low-key contribution to Cool Cats. Album opener Moody Boy goes in the other direction: a scattered, jazzy introduction that sounds semi-improvised, dissolving into chicken-scratch guitar rhythm and tough funk drums. The hybrid tone of the band is hugely important to this mix, with the Afrobeat licks of Dibongue’s choppy guitar style balanced by the more classically jazz texture of Mathias Allamane’s double bass. Freed from the role of support act, Allen is the unequivocal star of The Source, wallowing in the wonderful freedom of rhythmic expression.
