America

On this Independence Day holiday weekend we celebrate America's classical music, Jazz. Both patriotic and protest songs are represented here. From Jon Batist's rendition of our national anthem, to Max Roach and Abby Lincoln's Freedom Day, you'll hear a slice of American life. Paul Simon has a couple of compositions that reflect American life, one sung by Kurt Elling the other from Simon & Garfunkel. Ray Charles, Abby Lincoln, Gil Scott-Heron and Cecile McLorin-Salvant give diverse interpretations of the American experience in words and music.
