ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Langston Hughes Project is a multimedia presentation based on the poem, Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz. The poem was written in 1960, when Hughes had been asked to serve as the emcee for the New Port Jazz Festival. He had planned to collaborate with Charles Mingus, but passed away before they could realize the work as Hughes had intended. Ron McCurdy with Eli Brueggemann collaborated to compose the music based on the musical cues suggested by Langston Hughes. Ron McCurdy served as spoken-word artist and trumpet player for this recording. The rest of the ensemble included: Eli Brueggemann, piano, Gabe Noel, bass, Peter Buck, drums and Munyungo Jackson, percussion.
