Socialist Worker

Singerella: A Ghetto Fairy Tale - Gary Bartz Ntu Troop

Issue No. 2213

By 1972 the black power movement had its very own musical outlet in the form of avant-garde jazz.

On this superb album, songs such as “Dozens”, “Blind Man” and “Nation Time” speak of the black ghetto experience, while “I Don’t Care” shouts out of alienation.

The music and its execution are astounding.
