Afro Blue: It's a Matter of Pride on CD

'It's A Matter Of Pride,' is Afro Blue's second CD recording. The title is taken from one of the movements of Billy Taylor's jazz suite: Peaceful Warrior, written as a tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. 'If you Really Are Concerned Then Show It' is an additional selection from this same work. The lyrics of both pieces embody the very spirit of Howard University, reminding us to recognize those who have paved the way as we continue in our pursuit of advancement. We are further encouraged to become involved in our community and to lend a helping hand to make a better world. Also representative of pride in our heritage are 'The Star Spangled Banner,' (the National Anthem) and 'Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing,' (the Black National Anthem). A special rendition of Marvin Hamlisch's 'The Music of Being Free,' contributes to the message of freedom on this CD. The balance of the recording consists of jazz standards sung with Afro Blue's unique artistic delivery and promises pure musical pleasure.
