Troubled about America’s societal woes, bassist Marlene Rosenberg brings together drummer Lewis Nash and pianist Kenny Barron, a union forming the acronym MLK, to create her new album MLK Convergence with inspirations from the philosophies and outlooks of Martin Luther King Jr.
Colors, feelings and textures were inspiration for bassist Marlene Rosenberg’s compositions and albums in the past. In contrast, her latest album – “MLK Convergence” – is a response through music to America’s societal and political woes. For the recording in NYC, Marlene brings together drummer Lewis Nash and pianist Kenny Barron, a union forming the acronym MLK. The title, of course, also evokes the philosophies of the late Martin Luther King Jr.
The short 360 documentary provides a glimpse behind the scenes of the recording and into the composer’s mindset.
