A decade ago saxophonist Denys Baptiste was commissioned through the Jerwoood scheme at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival to make new creative use as an improviser of Dr Martin Luther King’s historic ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, which was delivered in Washington DC 50 years ago today. Baptiste's suite, comprised of titles 'I Have A Dream', 'With This Faith', 'Let Freedom Ring', and 'Free At Last', is a homage to those who have fought to overcome oppression and express ideals, as topical now as they were in Dr King's day, combining post-Coltranian jazz with gospel, blues, Afro-Cuban music, and the poetry of Ben Okri. Baptiste whose last album was Identity By Subtraction in 2011 is touring again in the autumn reprising the Let Freedom Ring! project which also was released as an album by Dune records. Dates include Sage, Gateshead (5 October); Usher Hall, Edinburgh (7 Oct); Turner Sims, Southampton (25 Oct); and QEH, London (26 Oct).
