Performance: We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite--The Fresh Cut Orchestra, 2/22-23/19 at Black Mountain College, North Carolina
(Published: February 19, 2019)


PERFORMANCE: WE INSIST! MAX ROACH'S FREEDOM NOW SUITE - THE FRESH CUT ORCHESTRA

Friday and Saturday, February 22 + 23 - 7pm

We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite by The Fresh Cut Orchestra.

A timely re-stageing of We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite, a seminal recording from the civil rights era. The piece will be performed by the NYC / Philadelphia-based ensemble Fresh Cut Orchestra with vocalist Melanie Charles. Recorded in the fall of 1960, the Freedom Now Suite was the most openly political jazz recording ever made, combining musical prowess with political dialogue. Nearly 60 years later, the issues posed by We Insist! are still relevant to our current political moment.

$10 - $20 suggested donation

Presented as a part of Come Hear North Carolina, in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Natural & Cultural Resources and the North Carolina Arts Council. Additional support provided by UNC Asheville.
