Release Date:05/12/2017;Notes:Cornbread Records present a reissue of Max Roach's We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite, originally released in 1960. Max Roach's 1960 masterwork We Insist! Is a suite based on the Civil Rights Movement, and involves variations on the theme of the struggle for African Americans to achieve equality in the United States, a struggle that is still all too relevant. Roach began composing with lyricist Oscar Brown Jr. In 1959, with the initial intention of having the suite performed in 1963, on the 100th anniversary of The Emancipation Proclamation. Featuring the wonderful Abbey Lincoln on vocals, as well as Booker Little, Julian Priester, Coleman Hawkins, Olatunji, and more, We Insist! Is a truly stunning album, one that knows no equal from that time or since. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl Includes download code.;Track List:1. Driva' Man;2. Freedom Man;3. Triptych: Prayer Protest Peace;4. All Africa;5. Tears for Johannesburg
