"Compañeros fallen in the struggle—
ever onward to victory!
Don't go looking for my grave
For you won't find it.
My hands are those that go
In other's hands that are firing
My voice is that which is shouting
My dream, follows
And know that I only die
If you give up
For those who die in combat l
Live on in every compañero
For those who die in combat
Life on in every...compañero."
(Poem found in pocket of student killed when U.S.-backed National Guard of El Salvador massacred a university protest)

Charlie Haden + Carla Bley: The Ballad of the Fallen (ECM Records, 1983). 13 years after releasing "Liberation Music Orchestra", Charlie Haden and Carla Bley continue to lift up the voices of the oppressed and those who have given their lives resisting colonialism and fascism around the world. The album contains interpretations of powerful, Revolutionary songs from the Spanish Civil War, El Salvador, Portugal, and Chile, backed by Carla Bley's creative arrangements for a large ensemble that includes legends like Don Cherry, Paul Motian, and Dewey Redman. #charliehaden #carlabley #doncherry #freejazz #jazz #revolutionarymusic #resist #protestmusic #avantgardejazz #vinyl #musicasresistance #politicalmusic #politicaljazz #onmyturntable #cratedigging #nowspinning #nowplaying #nofoodjustwax

Various Artists - Front liners (Undercurrent 1984)

Been meaning to post this for a while, I can't tell you how much I love this record, managed to get my hands on the whole series (there are 4 comps released between '84 and '87) earlier this year and I got seriously obsessed by them. The first one is definitely the highlight of the series and represents an amazing collection of political black music from a range of genres. The focus of the album is global covering a range of political events of the day, South Africa, Nicaragua, Lebanon. The series is produced by the National Black United Front (NBUF) coordinated by the Kansas City chapter.
It starts with a nice version of Tshotsholoza by the female vocal group In Process.
The next tune is by the Elton Gumble/Keith Leathers Quartet, Gumble and Leathers are from KC and released an earlier record on Undercurrent (which I will post some time) they have a track on all 4 comps. There sound is somewhere between modern soul and smooth jazz - which sounds horrendous but it's backed by quality song writing and strangely addictive.

Muntu (Thomas) Meloncon is a TSU professor who recorded one single for Judnell, and has appeared on several comps recently so I guess there are other singles. "Cutback Blues" is an incredible bluesy folk song, about austerity in Reagan's 80's America, as fitting today as it was then. On youtube:

Kalamu Chache ("We Need to See Those Days Again"), from the Bay area, also has a song on all 4 albums. She was in Sons and Daughter's of Lite, who recorded the seminal album "Let the Sun Shine In". She's backed by the Wobogo Ensemble a group led by husband and wife duo Vulindiela & Nizipo Wobogo. The track is a fairly straight ahead vocal jazz track, but a real earworm light and breezy it goes round your head for days.

The People's Workshop - "Chocolate Coated People Song". From Houston as well, this was the highlight of the Huston Talent Expo '82 album reissued by BBE earlier this year, beautiful modern soul song despite the serious message. On Spotify:

Idag kom ett nytt avsnitt av "Hey Mr. Jesse" med @heymrjesse och den något mindre entusiastiske @spudswings, alla swing-DJ:s älsklingspodcast. Denna gång med en låt från vår nya skiva, och det finste omdöme en gammal punkare kan få:
"Cats & Dinosaurs, how would I describe it, they tore the box open, they climbed out of the box, they stomped on the box, they lit the box on fire and then they peed on it, in a non gender-specific way.... I love it, I can't get enough of these guys!" Lyssna på hela avsnittet vetja, massa bra musiktips!

Various Artists - Frontliners 85 (Undercurrent 1985)
Second instalment in the series, not quite as good as the first but an interesting comp nonetheless.
Elton Gumbel/Keith Leathers Quartet - "Passed this Way" Gumbel & Leathers feature on all of the Frontliner comps and this track is another example of their modern soul/smooth jazz approach - it's alright.
Muntu Meloncon - "400 Years" TSU professor Thomas Meloncon had a track on the first record as well. This track is the A-side of the 7" he released on Judnell in 1974 (which goes for $$), but has been updated for the 1980's with a synth backing track. Not sure it adds anything over the original but a great track nonetheless.
Makka - "Save the Children" - Not the NC based Makka linked on discogs but a different group formed by Linford Carby and other exiled Jamaican veterans living in New York. It's a decent slice of 80's reggae in the "Third World" mode.
Clifford Sykes - "Clifford's Rap" Clifford sounds every inch the Detroit Junior High School teacher he is at the start of this track, which starts with a slow handclap beat and Clifford taking about Grandmaster Flash and Kurtis Blow being a "filthy mess". However, the backing track provided by an ensemble led by Donald Washington (father of Bird/Trane/Sco/Now! members) is fantastic and Clifford warms up after a while.
Check it:

Shahid - "Gift of God". A slice of 80's spiritual jazz funk from Amir Karim (Sonny Kenner) a KC blues guitarist. Along the lines of the Ambiance II Fusion ensemble, but not quite as good
Kalamu Chache - "My People". Chache from the Sons and Daughters of Lite, had a song on the first comp, and this one is similar (also backed by the Wobogo Jazz Ensemble), it's a nice vocal jazz number.
Reco Bembury - "Things Need to Change". Bembury is a youth worker from Seattle. "Things need to change" is a politically-charged slice of 80's R&B. Decent.

Nation Time is a tribute to author, playwright, poet and music critic Ameer Baraka (LeRoi Jones). Baraka, a man firmly committed to the building of a black nation, suggests the time will come when a brother or sister is asked "What time is it?" And the reply will be an overwhelming and resounding "Nation Time!" #joemcphee #nationtime #spiritualjazz #politicaljazz #afrojazz #cjrecords #boweavil #shakeyjake #scorpiosdance #repress #holygrailrecords #vassarcollege #urbancenterforblackstudies
