Robert Glasper Trio - "Enoch's Meditation" "We Shall Overcome" MLK.

Jazz pianist Robert Glasper plays an original composition "Enoch's Meditation," with narrative from Martin Luther King's 1966 "We Shall Overcome" speech, Barack Obama's presidential election night victory speech from Grant Park in Chicago, audio from Dr. Cornel West, and a spontaneous piano reharmonization of the presidential anthem, "Hail to the Chief." This performance was recorded January 14th at WBGO Studios in Newark, New Jersey. Produced by Josh Jackson. Mix by Josh Webb, with assistance from David Tallacksen. Happy Inauguration 2009, from the jazz community!
