"Weston has the biggest sound of any jazz pianist since Ellington and Monk as well as the richest most inventive beat." -Jazz Critic Stanley Crouch
This year marks the 50th anniversary of pianist/composer Randy Weston’s landmark opus Uhuru Afrika, a tribute to the many African countries that gained independence in 1960. The album featured jazz greats such as Clark Terry, Freddie Hubbard, Cecil Payne, Ron Carter and Max Roach, to name a few.
