In December 2016, JazzTimes traced the history of protest in jazz. It touched on classics like Louis Armstrong‚Äôs ‚Äú(What Did I Do to Be So) Black and Blue‚ÄĚ and Billie Holiday‚Äôs ‚ÄúStrange Fruit,‚ÄĚ right up to the fiery 'We Insist! Max Roach‚Äôs Freedom Now Suite‚Äô and Archie Shepp‚Äôs ‚ÄėAttica Blues.‚Äô But they left out the first album-length statement of the Civil Rights Era, leading longtime subscriber Sonny Rollins to write in and defend his magnificent yet oddly overshadowed 1958 album, ‚ÄėFreedom Suite.‚Äô The editors of JazzTimes weren‚Äôt the only ones to mistakenly pass it by.
