Abbey Lincoln – Great Women Singers of the 20th Century
A memorable evening with captivating jazz singer and activist Abbey Lincoln, which was a return to performing after being out of the public eye for some time
This theatre performance, presented “in the round” in 1991 at the Promenade Theater in New York City, had never been seen in its entirety before the release of the DVD.
Abbey Lincoln, who worked with Thelonius Monk and Max Roach, looks exquisite and is backed by a stellar jazz quintet. The show offers original compositions including ‘Bird Alone’ and ‘When I’m Called Home’ as well as standards like ‘Brother, Can You Spare A Dime’.
