“From the first ringing notes – “Oh Freedom” of Cynthia Felton’s Freedom Jazz Dance session, I was lifted by the life force of her celebration of the common language of jazz, blues and gospel.
Here is Cynthia Felton bringing the impact of her multi-dimensional human voice. And dig the heart-pulse beat – also known as swinging – in all of her storytelling including such too seldom heard originals as Charles Mingus’ “Duke Ellington’s Sound of Love.”
That’s what this music does. I’m 86 and the rejuvenating spirit of Cynthia Felton now adds to the sounds that keep me going.”
- Nat Hentoff, Legendary Jazz Critic
The cd features great musicians such as Cyrus Chestnut, Robert Hurst, Ernie Watts, Wallace Roney, Terri Lyne Carrington, and more.
