A recording of an historic concert, released for the first time! This 1940 concert was part of a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the end of slavery in the United States. Performing are the legendary Golden Gate Quartet with Josh White, singing Spirituals, Blues and Work Songs. The concert features commentary by Alan Lomax, the poet Sterling Brown, and Alain Locke, the godfather of the Harlem Renaissance. Immediately after this concert, Eleanor Roosevelt engaged White and the Golden Gate to perform at FDR’s inauguration.
This release presents the celebrated LP At the Stratford Shakespearean Festival (Verve MGV-8024) in its entirety. The album showcases Oscar Peterson’s drum-less trio featuring Herb Ellis and Ray Brown live in Ontario, Canada. According to Peterson himself, the group was seldom captured so well on records. A rarely heard reading of “Will You Still Be Mine?” taped by the same trio a couple of months later has been added here as a bonus.
