Celebrating John Lewis:
The New Black Music Repertory Ensemble
reviewed by Rahsaan Clark Morris
The Center For Black Music Research's New Black Music Repertory Ensemble continues to produce some of the more entertaining and educational events around. Thursday, May 10, the program held at the South Shore Cultural Center was originally conceived as a celebration of the work of John Lewis but, because of his untimely death last March, became instead a memorial tribute to the composer and founding member of the Modern Jazz Quartet.
