I was listening to JazzFM when the song came into my night, a jazz tune from the fifties could mean something special, Fables of Faubus confirms that rule, who was Faubus? The tune develops in a way that has always caught my attention – will there be any story behind the song? Orval Faubus was an Arkansas governor, the plot involves nine African-American teenagers, the National Guard and even the army’s 101st Airborne Division, all of it in a small town named Little Rock.
Tell me that jazz isn’t/wasn’t important in changing people’s minds! After all jazz has been constantly changing – It would be a surprise if it had stagnated and so we would still be listening to hardbop these days.The documentary is a must-see produced by the BBC.

Thana Alexa rewrote Charles Mingus’ song “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat” for some good reason. During a jazz course on improvisation she learned the song, it had really a strong impact on her, the need to express all that she was going through came naturally, so the vocalese and the words were put together, the song’s new title became The Wanderer.
