The Langston Hughes Project “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz”

Sottile Theatre

February 1, 2016

7:00 pm
Free and Open to the Public

 

The Langston Hughes Project is a multimedia concert performance of Langston Hughes’s kaleidoscopic jazz poem suite, which features the Ron McCurdy Quartet.  Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz is Hughes’s homage in verse, music to the struggle for artistic and social freedom at home and abroad at the beginning of the 1960s.  It is a twelve-part epic poem which Hughes scored with musical cues drawn from blues and Dixieland, gospel songs, boogie woogie, bebop and progressive jazz, Latin “cha cha” and Afro-Cuban mambo music, German lieder, Jewish liturgy, West Indian calypso, and African drumming — a creative masterwork left unperformed at his death.
