    I Am Not Your Negro Narrator: Samuel L. Jackson Director: Raoul Peck Distributor: Velvet Films This electrifying docu-drama invoking the eloquent words and profound personal experience of the great writer James Baldwin brings to life the stormy and transformational period of the Civil Rights movement in a way that is far more vivid than the images many saw on their small TV screens in the 1960s.

The musicians are very familiar with one another, and their paths have crossed many times over the years, particularly on the superb double album Never Too Late, But Always Too Early.

They truly reap the whirlwind on this album, adding the mighty free jazz titan Peter Brotzmann, whose "have reeds will travel" mindset makes him open for any kind of setting whether acoustic jazz with William Parker and Hamid Drake or blasting post-everything with the Japanese noise masters Fushitsusha.
