Synopsis

Amazon.com
In honor of the first African American to reach the major leagues in the modern era, this stellar collection brings together four decades' worth of artists that celebrate the fortitude of Jackie Robinson as well as the spirit of a people. From well-known hits like Sly and the Family Stone's "Stand" and the Fugees' "Manifest" to newer discoveries like Spearhead's "Positive" and "Stealing Home" (a reading by poet Nikki Giovanni), this lovingly compiled set captures the emotion of the hall of famer's rise to stardom. As a bonus, the disc includes a vintage Count Basie performance of "Did You See Jack Robinson Hit That Ball?" as well as spoken interludes from Robinson himself. --David Sprague
