With words penned in 1960 by Langston Hughes that still resonate as if written by a lyricist today, amplified by a cast including orchestra, opera, jazz vocals, spoken word, archival audio samples, and video, Ask Your Mama is the single epic, multi-media jazz/symphonic composition that will mark our 30th anniversary MLK Tribute concert. Don’t miss your chance to hear this Grammy® award-winning masterpiece (played live only 3 times in its history) in its full glory!


“ASK YOUR MAMA is easily one of the most moving, respectful, and authoritative evocations of a narration-based symphonic setting you’ll hear anywhere.” — Thought Catalogue

“Fevered, restrained, super-lush in turns...always impressive.” — Vanity Fair
