Christian McBride
The Movement Revisited: A Musical Portrait Of Four Icons

Christian McBride - The Movement Revisited: A Musical Portrait Of Four Icons

The Movement Revisited: A Musical Portrait Of Four Icons is culminating documentation of a richly inspired piece - lauding four key figures of the Civil Rights Movement: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks and Muhammad Ali. Marshaling his ever-sharpening skills as a composer, arranger, conductor, musician and lyricist, Christian McBride has created a historically and culturally illuminating five-part suite for an 18-piece big band, chorus and narrators that places the Civil Rights Movement within a powerfully relevant artistic context. This recording marks the addition of a fifth movement, “Apotheosis,” which acknowledges the election of Barack Obama as the first African American President of the United States.
