about

Consider this-
A people whose “maafa” included death by the millions in the middle passage, suffering through generations of chattel enslavement, rape,
thousands of lynching and murders (strange fruit – Red Summer of 1919) before and after the Civil War and Juneteenth, Jim Crow, racial discrimination and continued racism to this very day.

A people whose genius created a musically unique aesthetic expression of freedom out of this experience,
(“creative black music”, “hot music” or “African American Classical Music”, commonly called “jazz”) hijacked by an economically dominant society and labeled “American jazz”, reclaimed by the African American community through the “Modern Juneteenth Movement”as “Juneteenth Jazz”.

Perhaps the instrumental, born of this murderous glory, is now our Jazz. Not a replacement, but an extension. We present to you - Explorations of New Theories.
