With words penned in 1960 by Langston Hughes that still resonate as if written by a lyricist today, amplified by larger-than-life forces 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. Join us for an exhilarating journey that bursts the boundaries of time, place, and verbal expression to trace the currents and tributaries of cultural diasporas. Experience a vivid sonic tapestry of hot jazz, German lieder, cha-cha, patriotic songs, post- bop, Middle Eastern music, and Afro-Caribbean drumming.
