ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Langston Hughes Project is a multimedia presentation based on the poem by Hughes, "Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz." This poem was Hughes' social commentary on the struggle for freedom and equality for Africans and African Americans in the 1960s. We based the music on written musical cues written by Hughes. During the reciting of the poem, the music functions as a "live" soundtrack for the poem.
