May 22 — BLACK WALL STREET, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey (2011)

imageToday while driving back from Tulsa, I sampled several albums, listening for a band I could recommend for a client event — something with broad appeal that would make people get up and dance. I was listening to the Rebirth Brass Band, which led me to Trombone Shorty, which led me to these Tulsa natives. They didn’t make the short list for the project, but I’m glad I took the time to listen to their magnum opus, a nod to the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921.
