With two critically acclaimed albums and numerous awards including, in 1999, a Mercury Music Prize for An Album Of The Year and a MOBO Award for Best Jazz Act, high standards are expected and are definetely delivered for this, Denys Baptiste’s third album. Let Freedom Ring! is a beautifully crafted suite which musically echoes the historic ‘I Have A Dream’ speech of Dr Martin Luther King. Rejuvenating King’s message of freedom, equality and justice, Denys inspires us all through his joyously uplifting and celebratory outlook, encouraging us to Let Freedom Ring!. This album is an exhilarating mix of contemporary jazz, gospel, blues, and Afro-Cuban music combined with the poetry and voice of Ben Okri (reading extracts from his epic poem, Mental Fight)and featuring an explosive international line-up, including Abram Wilson, Gary Crosby, and Omar Puente

 

Reviews

 

01/01/2005 The Guardian

"Incandescent. A pretty impressive package."

 

01/01/2005 TimeOut

"Engrossing and intelligent music that also swings like hell. Dr King would be proud."

 

01/01/2005 Listen & Feel

"A rollercoaster ride of emotion, at times a deep soulful spiritual cry of hunger, at others a dance of joy."

 

01/01/2005 Echoes

"All of the push and pull and internal dynamics that made the Ellington-Roach-Rollins template so compelling."

 

01/01/2005 Jazzwise

"Sound with feeling, art with meaning, music with a message."
