Product Description

(2-CD set) Harriet Tubman is an original secular oratorio for 15 piece jazz orchestra and vocal ensemble composed and written by Marcus Shelby, based on a book of the same name by Kate Clifford Larson. The vocalists featured are Faye Carol, Kenny Washington, Jeannine Anderson and Joseph Mace. Shelby's oratorio will tell the remarkable story of Harriet Tubman, a woman who rose out of humble beginnings, escaped slavery and dedicated her life to challenging the grave injustices in her day. Working on the Underground Railroad, Tubman personally led 70 slaves out of bondage at great risk to her own life, and helped dozens more to freedom.

Review

Marcus Shelby's breathlessly ambitious 'Harriet Tubman' is superb. Bay Area bassist-composer Shelby has created a masterful jazz oratorio based on Kate Clifford Larson's book 'Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero,' the story of a true American heroine who led so many of her people through the Underground Railroad and out of the South.

Performed with thrilling perfection by his 15-piece jazz orchestra and extraordinary vocal soloists Faye Carol (singing the role of Tubman), Kenny Washington, Jeannine Anderson and Joseph Mace, 'Tubman' is an encyclopedia of musical forms, a tumble of surprises that segues from swing to bebop to gospel to cool to hot, with sweet classical licks along the way. The album glows with sublime performances by bassist Shelby; pianist Adam Shulman; Gabe Eaton on alto sax; drummer Jeff Marrs; Rob Barics and Evan Francis on tenor sax; trumpeters Dave Scott, Mike Olmos, Darren Johnston and Joel Ryan; Tom Griesser on baritone sax; Danny Grewen and Scott Larson on trombone; and many others.

As a creator and performer, Shelby is blessed not only with a singular musicality but also with a great sense of history. Like history, music grows out of itself, evolves from what has come before, as the past informs the present and shapes the future. That understanding is fundamentally what makes 'Harriet Tubman' not only a true tour de force but also, more significantly, a work that constantly reveals new aspects of itself with each listening. --David Wiegand, SF Chronicle, May 2008
