Continuing our celebration of protest music with Levine Music, WJMF hosts a band drawn from their top faculty. This project examines the musical legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. Pulling from traditional spirituals and extending to the work of Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye, Gil Scott Heron and Billie Holiday, the 10-person jazz and R&B outfit promises an evening of big sound and revolutionary culture.
