In December 2016, JazzTimes traced the history of protest in jazz. It touched on classics like Louis Armstrong’s “(What Did I Do to Be So) Black and Blue” and Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit,” right up to the fiery 'We Insist! Max Roach’s Freedom Now Suite’ and Archie Shepp’s ‘Attica Blues.’ 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, ‘Freedom Suite.’ The editors of JazzTimes weren’t the only ones to mistakenly pass it by.
