Synopsis

Album Description
Ella Jenkins is joined by other vocalists and musicians to sing and play spirituals, chants, blues, folk songs, and instrumentals. Their cadenced rhythms and measured vocals inspire free-form movement, dance, and sing-alongs. The second part of the recording features excerpts from interviews in which dance professionals and students share their philosophies about dance as art, as therapy, and as a business. Discipline, hard work, and dedication are the main themes in these interviews. Studio recordings from 1977. 21 tracks plus interviews. 68 minutes.
