MUSIC REVIEW BY Robert Rusch, Cadence Magazine

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

There are a number of elements that can influence me as to whether or not I'll write about a CD. Music is of course, foremost, then packaging, historical importance and so forth. I have enjoyed MARLENE ROSENBERG's MLK CONVERGENCE [Origin Records 82781]. On display here is both Rosenberg's bass playing (she has a touch of Mingus there) as well as her sincere concerns regarding social justice that is missing in today's society, but what really caught my attention were the 8 pages of notes where she writes about herself, the music [10 tracks (seven originals) 53:25] and the group [Kenny Barron-p, Lewis Nash-drm, Christian McBride- b]. Vocalists Thomas Burrell and Robert Irving III are featured on one track a piece. Get this for the liners and stay for the music. Overall, a fine package.
