In July 1992, the Orchestra - a powerhouse of some of
the top names in jazz - brought the collaborative sound of their album
"Dream Keeper" to the Montreal International Jazz Festival.
The African National Congress anthem, "Nkosi Sikelel'i
Afrika," opens the program and sets the tone, followed by a
suite-like series of traditional melodies from Latin America for a
unique, powerful performance.
Featuring: Ryan Kisor - trumpet; Joe Lovano - sax; Jovan Jackson - sax; Robin Eubanks -
trombone; Bill Stewart - drums; Charlie Haden - bass; others.
Selections: Nkosi Sikelel'i Afrika, Dream Keeper
, Feliciano Ama, Canto Del Pilon, Hymn of the Anarchist Women's
