Description

Re-release of the Poets' soundtrack to Herbert Danska's 1971 movie Right On!, an example of poetry in motion through the multiple verbal attacks by this ensemble of African American musicians / protesters. Danska was awarded the Choice Of Directors prize at the 1971 Cannes film Festival and his work hinges on 'the beginning of new movies, where Black and Third World art is going' (from the original LP's liner notes by Imamu Baraka aka LeRoi Jones). This album continues the Poets' deep research in music, so original and unique that it became known as 'jazzoetry' for its well rounded way of merging both musical and lyric disciplines.
