Three adventurous vocalists of today present compelling visions of America in the 1960's, paying tribute to three giants: Abbey Lincoln, Joni Mitchell and Nina Simone. These prolific artists championed freedom in the realms of civil rights, individuality, love and politics. Abbey Lincoln was a strong presence at Da Camera, appearing the first year the organization presented a stand-alone jazz series and making multiple return visits. Grammy Award-winning drummer Ulysses Owens, Jr. is music director of this ambitious tribute first presented at Jazz at Lincoln Center. "among the most dynamic jazz vocalists around …The voice is spectacular: dark, full and rich…utterly transfixing." - JazzTimes on René Marie "a singer with a strong and luscious tone and an amiably regal presence on stage" - The New York Times on Alicia Olatuja "Theo Bleckmann sounds like he can sing anything." - Boston Globe Friday, December 1, 2017, 8:00 PM
