This debut album combines straight-ahead jazz, world music, blues and hip hop with Kamau’s compelling poems of redemption, dignity and salvation. The result is an impressive recording that blurs the distinction between art and entertainment, and affirms Kamau Daáood’s role as an urban prophet and word musician. Featured performers include Billy Higgins, Horace Tapscott, James Newton, Carmen Bradford, Dr. Art Davis and B Sharp Jazz Quartet.
