O’s Notes: Drummer Jerome Jennings is a passionate musician who makes the most of every beat. He is also attentive to the details of African American history and pays homage to many untold heroes, musicians, genres and several courageous Black women who made a meaningful impact on society. Jerome produced and arranged the music including writing all or parts of severn selections. Accompanying artists include Christian McBride (b), Endeavor Owens (b) and Tia Fuller (sax, fl). Camille Thurman adds vocals on “I Love Your Smile” and tenor sax on “Pay It No Mind”. Paired with the liner notes, it is an emotional set.
