In August of 1958, in front of a Harlem brownstone, first-time photographer Art Kane assembled 57 of the greatest jazz stars of all time and snapped a picture that would live forever.

Through remarkable interviews with nearly 30 jazz greats (including Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins and Art Blakey), home movies shot by Milt and Mona Hinton, and rare, archival performance footage, A Great Day in Harlem tells the story behind a legendary photograph that is still alive and kicking - and jammin'! Hours of New Special Features!

THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION is the first feature length documentary to explore the Black Panther Party, its significance to the broader American culture, its cultural and political awakening for black people, and the painful lessons wrought when a movement derails. Master documentarian Stanley Nelson goes straight to the source, weaving a treasure trove of rare archival footage with the voices of the people who were there: police, FBI informants, journalists, white supporters and detractors, and Black Panthers who remained loyal to the party and those who left it. Featuring Kathleen Cleaver, Jamal Joseph, and many others, THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION is an essential history and a vibrant chronicle of this pivotal movement that birthed a new revolutionary culture in America.

 $ 50 AHMAD JAMAL TRIO, THE AWAKENING (CD)

Ahmad Jamal's style on this album is somewhat different from the recordings he did from the 1950s and has become more thrilling and explicit. He is still performing in a trio format with Jamil Nasser (George Joyner) on bass and Frank Gant on drums. There are some clever interpretations of songs like Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance" and Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave," but the best interpretation of all on this is Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments," which is played pretty much like the original from the Oliver Nelson album "Blues and the Abstract Truth." Jamal sticks to bossa rhythms on the title track and "Patterns." He would continue to perform this way with his trio on up until 1975. This is also the last album to feature him play acoustic piano exclusively. - Liam Watsonon

 $ 60 CHARLIE HADEN & LIBERATION MUSIC ORCHESTRA - TIME LIFE (CD)

With a career that spanned more than a half a century, Charlie Haden proved to be not only one of jazzs finest bassists and composers, he was also a staunch champion of justice. Throughout his career, his rebellious yet gentle spirit addressed various socio-political injustices, particularly with his galvanizing Liberation Music Orchestra, which he founded in 1969. The following year, it released its prophetic, eponymously titled debut album on Impulse Records!, which boasted a stellar lineup that included such fellow jazz renegades as Don Cherry, Gato Barbieri, Dewey Redman, Paul Motian, and the arranger, composer Carla Bley whom Haden would eventually ask to arrange all of his subsequent Liberation Music Orchestra recordings. Two years after Charlies passing in July 2014, his musical vision continues to ignite that esteemed ensemble with the release of its latest disc, Time/Life (Song for the Whales and Other Beings). The disc documents the final recording on which Charlie performed with the Liberation Music Orchestra. The concept for Time/Life originated in 2007 when Charlie felt the environment was being abused to such a dangerous extent that they had to speak out about it. It was long overdue. Four years later in August, the Liberation Music Orchestra performed at the Middelheim Jazz Festival in Antwerp, Belgium; Bertrand Flamang, the festivals director, wanted the thematic focus for that year to be on the environment. So with Carla Bleys ingenious arrangements, the Liberation Music Orchestra delivered a luxuriant rendering of Bill Evans and Miles Davis Blue in Green and an evocative exploration through Song for the Whales, a lamenting composition Haden penned in 1979, and first recorded with the band Old and New Dreams.

 $ 60 LOU CAIMANO, DYAD PLAYS JAZZ ARIAS (MP3 ALBUM) (CD)

Artists from Duke Ellington to Gunther Schuller have used elements from classical music to create new and exciting jazz sounds. Today, alto saxophonist Lou Caimano and pianist Eric Olsen are among the most innovative musical talents to fuse these two great art forms. Here they transform well-known operatic arias into imaginative and unconventional jazz compositions. Caimano and Olsen are two superb musicians steeped in both the jazz and classical worlds. They've been performing under the name of Dyad for over 16 years. DYAD PLAYS JAZZ ARIAS is their third classical/jazz fusion recording together. They're joined on this CD by jazz masters Randy Brecker on trumpet & flugelhorn and Ted Nash on tenor saxophone. DYAD PLAYS JAZZ ARIAS is a gorgeous, moving album that will appeal to both jazz and classical aficionados. It features brilliant performances with arrangements that pay homage to the originals, but allow the players full expression in the jazz idiom. The ensemble is Eric Olsen, piano, Lou Caimano, alto saxophone with guests Randy Brecker, trumpet, fluegelhorn and Ted Nash, tenor saxophone. - Grady Harp

 $ 70 DUKE ELLINGTON - BLACK, BROWN AND BEIGE (CD)

As a composer and bandleader associated indelibly with the nightclub scenes of pre-Swing Era jazz, Duke Ellington would have a difficult time getting respect in the button-down world of concert music. And when Ellington premiered his first long-form piece, Black, Brown and Beige, in 1943 (available on the stunning Carnegie Hall Concerts, January 1943), he was considered a dilettante. He laid the work aside until this recording, which came in early 1958--with the added oomph of gospel vocalist Mahalia Jackson on board for all the suite's vocal parts. On this expanded reissue, Columbia has added an alternate take of the entire piece as well as two unrelated tracks recorded during the Black, Brown sessions but never before released. The suite is an expansive look, from Ellington's vantage, of course, at the evolution of African American history and culture. So there are ripples of spirited tone poetry, soaring gospel vocals from Jackson (with spare, aching piano from Ellington in spots), thundering horn-fronted swing from the band, and a consistency and unity on par with any symphonic work of the modern era. Ellington was always sensitive about this piece. After all, it showed a lot of what he held in high esteem: history, musical meditations on culture, and a full, colorful use of a band that Ellington held together for an amazingly long time. If only for Mahalia Jackson's takes on "Come Sunday," by now an acknowledged standard, this set is awesome. - Andrew Bartlett

Simply wonderful. If you appreciate the Dead, this is a must-have! I daresay, even if you are not familiar with the Dead's opus, you will enjoy this, especially if you appreciate solo piano, but even if you do not have such a predilection. Holly's playing is sophisticated and soulful. None of the spirit or musicality of the pieces are sacrificed. A remarkable achievement. I could see how in other hands this treatment could have come off somewhat Muzak-y, but not here. This is reflective, stirring, tranquil and transcendent. - R. L. Wolfeon

 $ 75 GEORGE LAKOFF, THE ALL NEW DON'T THINK OF AN ELEPHANT (Book)

The ALL NEW Don't Think of an Elephant!: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate. Ten years after writing the definitive, international bestselling book on political debate and messaging, George Lakoff returns with new strategies about how to frame today's essential issues. Called the "father of framing" by The New York Times, Lakoff explains how framing is about ideas-ideas that come before policy, ideas that make sense of facts, ideas that are proactive not reactive, positive not negative, ideas that need to be communicated out loud every day in public. The ALL NEW Don't Think of an Elephant! picks up where the original book left off-delving deeper into how framing works, how framing has evolved in the past decade, how to speak to people who harbor elements of both progressive and conservative worldviews, how to counter propaganda and slogans, and more. In this updated and expanded edition, Lakoff, urges progressives to go beyond the typical laundry list of facts, policies, and programs and present a clear moral vision to the country-one that is traditionally American and can become a guidepost for developing compassionate, effective policy that upholds citizens' well-being and freedom.

 $ 75 JAMES BALDWIN, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO (Book)

I Am Not Your Negro: A Companion Edition to the Documentary Film Directed by Raoul Peck. To compose his stunning documentary film I Am Not Your Negro, acclaimed filmmaker Raoul Peck mined James Baldwin's published and unpublished oeuvre, selecting passages from his books, essays, letters, notes, and interviews that are every bit as incisive and pertinent now as they have ever been. Weaving these texts together, Peck brilliantly imagines the book that Baldwin never wrote. In his final years, Baldwin had envisioned a book about his three assassinated friends, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King. His deeply personal notes for the project have never been published before. Peck's film uses them to jump through time, juxtaposing Baldwin's private words with his public statements, in a blazing examination of the tragic history of race in America. This edition contains more than 40 black-and-white images from the film.

 $ 90 KEEANGA_YAMAHTTA TAYLOR, BLACKLIVESMATTER TO BLACK LIBERATION (Book)

The eruption of mass protests in the wake of the police murders of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York City have challenged the impunity with which officers of the law carry out violence against Black people and punctured the illusion of a postracial America. The Black Lives Matter movement has awakened a new generation of activists. In this stirring and insightful analysis, activist and scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor surveys the historical and contemporary ravages of racism and persistence of structural inequality such as mass incarceration and Black unemployment. In this context, she argues that this new struggle against police violence holds the potential to reignite a broader push for Black liberation.

 $ 90 RICHARD D. WOLFF - CAPITALISM'S CRISES DEEPENS (PAPERBACK) (Book)

"Richard Wolff's constructive and innovative ideas suggest new and promising foundations for much more authentic democracy and sustainable and equitable development, ideas that can be implemented directly and carried forward. A very valuable contribution in troubled times." - Noam Chomsky "Richard Wolff is the leading socialist economist in the country. This book is required reading for anyone concerned about a fundamental transformation of the ailing capitalist economy!" - Cornel West "Bold, thoughtful, transformative-a powerful and challenging vision that takes us beyond both corporate capitalism and state socialism. Richard Wolff at his best!" - Gar Alperovitz While most mainstream commentators view the crisis that provoked the Great Recession as having passed, these essays from Richard Wolff paint a far less rosy picture. Drawing attention to the extreme downturn in most of capitalism's old centers, the unequal growth in its new centers, and the resurgence of a global speculative bubble, Wolff-in his uniquely accessible style-makes the case that the crisis should be grasped not as a passing moment, but as an evolving stage in capitalism's history.

 $ 120 MICHAEL ERIC DYSON, TEARS WE CANNOT STOP (Book)

Short, emotional, literary, powerful-Tears We Cannot Stop is the book that all Americans who care about the current and long-burning crisis in race relations will want to read. As the country grapples with racist division at a level not seen since the 1960s, one man's voice soars above the rest with conviction and compassion. In his 2016 New York Times op-ed piece "Death in Black and White," Michael Eric Dyson moved a nation. Now he continues to speak out in Tears We Cannot Stop-a provocative and deeply personal call for change. Dyson argues that if we are to make real racial progress we must face difficult truths, including being honest about how black grievance has been ignored, dismissed, or discounted. "The time is at hand for reckoning with the past, recognizing the truth of the present, and moving together to redeem the nation for our future. If we don't act now, if you don't address race immediately, there very well may be no future."

 $ 130 MATT TAIBBI, INSANE CLOWN PRESIDENT: DISPATCHES FROM THE 2016 CIRCUS (Book)

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. Dispatches from the 2016 election that provide an eerily prescient take on our democracy’s uncertain future, by the country’s most perceptive and fearless political journalist. In twenty-five pieces from Rolling Stone-plus two original essays-Matt Taibbi tells the story of Western civilization's very own train wreck, from its tragicomic beginnings to its apocalyptic conclusion. Years before the clown car of candidates was fully loaded, Taibbi grasped the essential themes of the story: the power of spectacle over substance, or even truth; the absence of a shared reality; the nihilistic rebellion of the white working class; the death of the political establishment; and the emergence of a new, explicit form of white nationalism that would destroy what was left of the Kingian dream of a successful pluralistic society. Taibbi captures, with dead-on, real-time analysis, the failures of the right and the left, from the thwarted Bernie Sanders insurgency to the flawed and aimless Hillary Clinton campaign; the rise of the "dangerously bright" alt-right with its wall-loving identity politics and its rapturous view of the "Racial Holy War" to come; and the giant fail of a flailing, reactive political media that fed a ravenous news cycle not with reporting on political ideology, but with undigested propaganda served straight from the campaign bubble. At the center of it all stands Donald J. Trump, leading a historic revolt against his own party, "bloviating and farting his way" through the campaign, "saying outrageous things, acting like Hitler one minute and Andrew Dice Clay the next." For Taibbi, the stunning rise of Trump marks the apotheosis of the new postfactual movement. Taibbi frames the reporting with original essays that explore the seismic shift in how we perceive our national institutions, the democratic process, and the future of the country. Insane Clown President is not just a postmortem on the collapse and failure of American democracy. It offers the riveting, surreal, unique, and essential experience of seeing the future in hindsight. Praise for Matt Taibbi "Matt Taibbi is one of the few journalists in America who speaks truth to power." -Senator Bernie Sanders
