Freedom Day

Happy Fourth of July.  I have posted Max Roach's 'Speak, Brother, Speak,' my Live365 station, in honor of these United States.  For entirely obvious reasons, there is a not a lot of explicitly patriotic music in jazz.  However, the civil rights stuff is more than genuinely patriotic in its fashion.  I think you will enjoy the long Roach piece.
