QUOTATION OF THE DAY
“Maybe there was some sort of presumption
on the part of the president and his team
that if the U.S. said stop,
this process would come to a halt.
What this shows is that’s not true.

The world just moves on without us.”

PHIL LEVY,
a former White House economist,
on President Trump’s approach to planned trade pacts.

A

Cri de Coeur

From Jazz Musicians

in a

Black Lives Matter

Age

X

X

X

X

The emotional climax of Terence Blanchard’s SummerStage concert on Friday night, at Clove Lakes Park on Staten Island, arrived precisely one hour in, like a timed detonation. It was the title track of his most recent album, “Breathless” — an elegy for Eric Garner, who died at the hands of police officers on Staten Island just over two years ago. Mr. Blanchard, in his trumpet solo over the plaintive theme, struck a careful tonal balance, sounding haunted but unflinching.

X

X

Mr. Garner’s last words, “I can’t breathe,” became a rallying cry soon after his death, which was caught on video and viewed by millions. The phrase served a blunt, potent role at protests and on social media, bolstering the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement. It has been printed on T-shirts, signs and buttons, like the one worn on Friday by Mr. Garner’s 2-year-old daughter, Legacy, as she distractedly took in Mr. Blanchard’s performance near the foot of the stage.

X

X

The saying also surfaced, pluralized, in Breathless,” via a recorded spoken-word recitation by Mr. Blanchard’s son, who goes by JRei Oliver. “Am I wrong for believing that one day black and blue would not equal pain?” he said. Then, a moment later:

These black roses grow from cracked pavements
Freshly watered with the tears of the voiceless
As we’ll emit a muted scream to the heavens:
We. Can’t. Breathe.

X

X

During a long, hard season of activist urgency in black popular music — among artists like Kendrick Lamar, D’Angelo and now Beyoncé — jazz has by no means lagged behind. Mr. Blanchard’s album, released on Blue Note last year, is just one recent statement of many, driven by indignation, the push for justice and the urge to bear witness.

 X

X

Of course, there’s deep lineage for this in jazz, stretching even further than Louis Armstrong’s 1929 recording of “(What Did I Do to Be So) Black and Blue,” which inspired a crucial early passage in Ralph Ellison’s “Invisible Man.” Any discussion of this topic would have to include Billie Holiday’s bloodcurdling lynching anthem, “Strange Fruit” (1939); Charles Mingus’s “Fables of Faubus” (1959), about the fight for school integration; Max Roach and Abbey Lincoln’s “We Insist! Freedom Now Suite” (1960), a civil rights cri de coeur; and John Coltrane’s “Alabama” (1963), a lament made in response to the notorious church bombing in Birmingham.

X

X

The current upswell has been built on this granite foundation: Jazz musicians are nothing if not self-conscious about their forebears. But the dimensions of today’s moment have also shaped the music. When the pianist Vijay Iyer began a 2014 performance in Brooklyn with a “die-in,” dancers lying on the stage, he was bringing Black Lives Matter into the concert hall. When the keyboardist Kris Bowers performed his song “#TheProtestor” in Harlem two years ago, it featured a bracing topical digression by the vocalist Chris Turner.

X

X

Last year another singer, José James, released an album in centennial tribute to Holiday, inevitably closing with “Strange Fruit.” He sings it as an a cappella dirge, with a looping, multitracked moan. It flew mostly under the radar, but Mr. James also collaborated around the same time with the artist Talia Billig for “Peace Power Change,” a video set to his acoustic cover of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come.”

Part of the power of that song, in its original context, was a yearning faith in the great sweep of history. “Peace Power Change” embraces a more intimate premise: A succession of musicians look into the camera, serious or smiling, and hold up handwritten signs bearing the names of victims of police violence, or “#blacklivesmatter,” or simply “Justice.”

X

X

X

X

One of the artists in the video is Keyon Harrold, a trumpeter born and raised in Ferguson, Mo., where the most wrenching confrontations between protesters and the police have taken place. Mr. Harrold tells his story in brief on one track of “Nihil Novi,” a new album by the multireedist Marcus Strickland; he begins by stating his name, as in a testimony.

Names are central to this era of jazz protest, partly because of the influence of social media: When another African-American falls victim to violence by the state, his or her name becomes a hashtag, a trending topic, a tragic new meme. It’s a bulwark against the dehumanizing mode of the opposition, and a way of keeping injustice from glazing into an abstraction. The trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire grasped this idea when he put “My Name Is Oscar” on his major-label debut five years ago. The track features a spoken-word poem read by Mr. Akinmusire in the voice of Oscar Grant III, who was shot and killed by a transit officer in Oakland, Calif. (and later inspired the film “Fruitvale Station”). In 2014, Mr. Akinmusire released a more chilling and expansive follow-up, “Roll Call for Those Absent,” consisting of the names of casualties sounded out by a child, over a darkly unsettled synthesizer hum.

You can find more outright fury elsewhere, as in “K.K.P.D.” (for “Ku Klux Police Department”), a 2010 track by the trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, which he performed recently the Newport Jazz Festival. Mr. James could be seen at the same festival covering the outspoken hip-hop group Dead Prez, segueing from “Police State” into “Behind Enemy Lines.”

X

X

Mr. Blanchard, who has long been the composer of Spike Lee’s film scores (including “Chi-Raq” and “Malcolm X”), has a more mournful disposition. Even when he has mobilized behind his social statement, his natural mode is reflection: The most telling word in his 2007 album “A Tale of God’s Will (A Requiem for Katrina),” inspired by events that literally hit home, is “requiem.”

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/12/arts/music/12chin.html

X

X

On Staten Island he led his fusionesque young band, the E-Collective, in a set that often bounded toward turbocharged dynamism, with tragedy seemingly far from the picture. But near the concert’s close, after he delivered his most pugilistic trumpet solo on a tune called “Cosmic Warrior,” to cheers and applause from a crowd with an obvious stake in the moment,

Mr. Blanchard leaned into the microphone with a message.

We hope

we are a small part

of the healing process,”

he said.

“Love triumphs

over hate,

every time.”

There are many ways that American culture

tells women to be quiet

—many ways they are reminded

that they would really be SO MUCH MORE pleasing

IF they would just smile a little more,

or talk a little less,

or work a little harder to be

PLIANT

and

AGREEABLE.

X
X

Women are,

in general,

extremely ATTUNED to these messages;

we have,

after all,

heard them

ALL

OUR

LIVES.

X
X
X
X
X

There
is a

Native American parable

about a ELDER who says:
 “I feel as if I have

two wolves

fighting

in my heart.

X
X

One wolf is the

vengeful, angry one.

The other wolf is the

loving, compassionate one.”

X

X

 When asked which wolf

will win the fight in their heart,

the ELDER replies: 

The one I feed.”

THE GENESIS:

This exhibition was conceived in conversation between Kristen and Kate a few days after the U.S. Presidential Election. With the intention of providing a reason, space, and context for artists to respond to the current circumstance, they agreed to set a show in motion, and allow the call to take on a life of its own. Word spread between artists and within a short time, the number of participants rose from 50 to 150. The current list of participating artists is included below.

X

X
THE SHOUT OUT:

“If you choose to make a work that addresses things internal, or external, or some state in-between, that is up to you. Make what you need to make in whatever form, and at whatever pitch you choose.”

(Excerpt from the call to participate.)

X

If we stop to comprehend the “unrealistic” endeavors that we pursue, we would never do them. This show has been a leap of faith and a truly collaborative endeavor.

X

X

Lauren Barnes and Shanekia McIntosh are organizing the opening day of performances, talks, and events. Carrie Schneider is managing new media submissions. Courtney Childress, Sheree Hovespain, Eleanor King, Gina Magid, Carleen Sheehan, Elise Siegel, and Ana Wolovick are providing drop-off locations for participating artists. Lilah Friedland is managing the collection of works in collaboration with our staff. Many participating artists have personally shipped their work to the gallery and offered their time and resources.

A portion of all sales will be donated to the local factions of

Planned Parenthood and Black Lives Matter.

“I was contacted by Kristen and Kate within a week after the Presidential Election.
Artist Donna Dennis championed my art.
(Donna’s work will be on exhibition as well. SEE ABOVE )
I am the ONLY artist outside of NYC to be in  POSTELECTION.”

“ARTISTS are HURRICANE LAMPS / PINE TREES / CRUCIBLES

of telling TRUTH;

naming BEAUTY;

envisioning FIELDS/BLOOMS/WILDERNESS of FREEDOM

and

the persevering upholders LOVELIGHTGRACE.

X

ARTISTS call out the “Better Angels in our Nature”.

ARTISTS are FREEDOM fighters.

It is remarkably imperative to march our lives

to the rhythm of FREEDOM + CREATIVITY

+ HONOR/ RESPECT FOR/TO ALL.

Oracles.
Shamans.”
