Notes & Reviews:

Imani Winds has created this biographical program in honor of Josephine Baker's centennial, comprising original music by two of Imani's members (Valerie Coleman and Jeff Scott) and some of Josephine's most famous songs. Josephine Baker was an amazingly clairvoyant, progressive thinker whose dedication to racial and religious equality motivated her to break barriers, aid the French resistance during World War II, and fight for civil rights across the globe. 743625751727
