    Stellar album. Deep jazz of the highest order. Oftentimes, free jazz improvisation feels a bit like a show-off or a gimmick, almost as a sign of musical ability more than emotional honesty. On the title track of this album, the improvisation is laden with so much emotion, and that backing choir is haunting.
    "Mother's Land" is a more comforting and celebratory number, full of love and care. Wraps you in a warm embrace and at the same time fills you with hope for the future.

      An album made to acknowledge the tragic murder of 20 African-American school children by a serial killer in Atlanta. Taking the subject into consideration you would expect this to be either a very angry or very melancholic recording, but not at all, this album seems to be hopeful of a better life for those children now they're out of the cruel one they had. The whole thing is a totally beautiful listen from start to finish, and due to the subject matter, really quite an emotional ride. Parts of this album come under the soaring vocal genre, matching the Sons & Daughters of Lite and Ensemble Al-Salaam for that powerful, yet beautiful vocal style. No Highlights, this album is magical from start to finish. Oh, and without a doubt the finest outing from Mr. Hannibal. Absolutely essential in my book.
