Sign in to view read count
Along with the celebrations of Amiri Baraka and Roy Campbell on the final day of Vision Festival 19 are several ensemble situations for piano from a duet fir Angelica Sanchez, a trio for Connie Crothers and the venerable Dave Burrell in striking quartet with Kidd Jordan, William Parker and Hamid Drake.

And the voice of Fay Victor in a drum duet makes a perfect contrast.

It is a quintessence of the Vision Festival outlook that Art for Arts has carefully nurtured through 19 of these very elaborate love labors rising from a solid ground of community rather than being imposed from above by commerce.

FREEDOM IS HARD WON (Honoring Amiri Baraka).
