Moments to celebrate life seem to come few and far between, especially in today’s social climate. Pianist Ray Angry’s latest contribution to the Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1 compilation takes cues from the revolutionary spirit of Harry Belafonte, Nina Simone, Langston Hughes and combats the injustice plaguing today’s headlines with the sounds of harmony. Here, Nadia Washington, Chris Potter, James Genus and Jeff “Tain” Watts also join the rally for Angry’s “Celebration of Life Suite: Awakening” featuring the Council of Goldfinger.
Angry is a keyboardist, producer, and composer extraordinaire that has linked and toured with The Roots, John Legend, Ms. Lauryn Hill, D’Angelo, Joss Stone, Melanie Fiona, and Miguel. Pre-order Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1 (Blue Note / REVIVE Music) on iTunes here.
