by Stefon Harris + Blackout
An album that chronicles the story of a people and their time on the planet. It is a reflection of African-American life in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Furthermore, it is a sonic manifestation and creed of family, community and legacy. The album explores afresh the music of masters such as Bobby Hutcherson, Abbey Lincoln, Wayne Shorter and Horace Silver.
5 out of 5 stars. If you only buy one jazz album this year make it this one.
“JAZZ IS A SONIC MANIFESTATION OF THE HOPES AND DREAMS OF A COMMUNITY.” STEFON HARRIS
