DIGIPACK EDITION

The second part of Matana Roberts' projected twelve-part jazz tapestry is an extremely confounding and yet gorgeously structured work, based around four-pronged suites of free jazz, operatic vocals, smooth spoken word narratives and gospel chants. The record rises and falls around these passages of music to show the personal and political implications of civil rights and racism in America.
