Utilizing the first-call talents of some of New York’s finest musicians, Tessa Souter’s upcoming album, Picture in Black and White – a riveting musical account of the journey launched by her discovery at the age of 28 that her birth father was black – is a meditation on the African diaspora experience in America, England and the Caribbean, of slavery, loss, love and redemption. A mixture of originals and familiar non-standards, including Wayne Shorter’s ‘Ana Maria’ (with Tessa’s lyrics, for which he granted her shared writing credit), Ornette Coleman’s ‘Lonely Woman’ and Milton Nascimento’s ‘Nothing Will Be As It Was’, it is an emotionally resonant invitation through music to reflect on the pellucid and lasting repercussions of that period in history.
There will also be fun!
