Malachi Thompson 47th Street   Delmark DE-497

47th Street (The Mystery of Jaaz)   is Malachi Thompson's musical tribute to a vibrant period of black Chicago history; when 47th street was the epicenter of the South Side's cultural and economic life, and the Sutherland Hotel and the Regal Theater hosted the jazz greats of the first two-thirds of this century. Some of the music was written for the new Charles Smith play, The Sutherland, opening September 18 at Victory Gardens Theater, Chicago.
