Poet John Sinclair, leader of the anti-racist White Panther Party, reads his poetry with the NYC quintet of Ras Moshe (sax), Elliott Levin (sax), Alex Obert (bass), Ander Nilssen (guitar) and Michael Wimberly (drums).

"John Sinclair (born October 2, 1941 in Flint, Michigan) is an American poet from Detroit, one-time manager of the band MC5, and leader of the White Panther Party - a militantly anti-racist countercultural group of white socialists seeking to assist the Black Panthers in the Civil Rights movement - from November 1968 to July 1969. Sinclair was a member of the Class of 1960 at Albion College in Albion, Michigan, but he dropped out after his freshman year. Sinclair attended the Flint College of the University of Michigan, now the University of Michigan-Flint. During his time at UM-Flint John served on the university's Publications Board, school newspaper "the word", and was the president of the Cinema Guild. He graduated in 1964."-Wikipedia

Artist Biographies:

"Ras Moshe has been playing in various groups throughout New York City for almost twenty years, with William Hooker, Sabir Mateen, Steve Swell, Marc Edwards and others. His style has been compared to post-1965 John Coltrane and Frank Wright, among others. Born and raised in New York, and with a family history rich in the jazz tradition, Ras has uniquely positioned himself to bring the lineage of free jazz into the present day."
