Blues For Falasha
"The question of identity has historically played a large role in the survival of the Jewish people and had special significance to free jazz tenor titan Glenn Spearman, as the son of an African-American father and a Jewish mother. Before his death of cancer in Oct. 1998, Spearman become involved in a deep exploration of his Jewish roots, a journey that expressed itself musically in Blues For Falasha, his last and most adventurous recorded composition. This powerful meeting of Jewish and African-American traditions features Spearman's landmark group 'The Double Trio' in a long, visionary work composed especially for the Tzadik Jewish series." With Larry Ochs, Chris Brown, Lisle Ellis, Donald Robinson & William Winant.
