Description

Title: Requiem For Jazz
Artist: Angel Bat Dawid
Label: International Anthem
Product Type: VINYL LP
UPC: 789993992720
Genre: Jazz

Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Includes poster. Composer, clarinetist, singer and educator Angel Bat Dawid announces the release of Requiem For Jazz. A 12-movement suite composed, arranged, and inspired in part by dialogue from Edward O. Bland's 1959 film The Cry of Jazz, the album is a wide-ranging treatise on the African American story from one of it's most astute narrators. Itself an incisive critique of racial politics in the USA, The Cry of Jazz draws formal comparisons between the structure of jazz music and the African American experience - as one of freedom and restraint, of joy and suffering - that manifests in the triumph of spirit over the crushing prejudice of daily life. Cutting together archive reels from Black neighborhoods in Chicago with live performance footage from Sun Ra and his Arkestra among others, the film remains a radical and prescient evocation of Black pride and it's roots in the history of jazz, from spirituals to blues and beyond.
