This song was composed after the events in Charleston that happened a few weeks ago. However the spirit of the song was also inspired by the recent deaths of African Americans at the hands of the police. This song speaks to hate, racism and for the need for equal treatment for African Americans and people of color in America. Enough is enough. This song features the spoken word artististry of Shazara and the vocal talents of Angie Sabir Penn. This single was released on August 7th the same day as Ojeda's newest album, "Ride Music".
This song and collaboration was decades in the making. It combines the talents of two Atlanta Jazz greats, Ojeda Penn and Theresa Hightower. Although they have performed numerous times live, they never have recorded together until now. Ojeda's warm arrangement of the Thelonious Monk classic, "Round Midnight", was tailored to fit the sultry vocal talents of Theresa Hightower. Her satin voice, haunting tones and playful yet serious interpretation will sooth any listener. This cover actually does justice to the original also due in part to the arrangement and keyboard prowess of Ojeda Penn. Another soon to be Jazz classic. The song is now available on CDBaby.com, I-Tunes, Amazon, Google Play and other online music stores and apps.
"Ride Music" is not only the latest album release by Ojeda Penn, but also the concept and vibe of the album. You can put this on, press play and just "ride". You will find yourself bobbing your head as you find something different to like about each selection on this long awaited release. The album features the talents of Shazara, Wall St. and Willona Allison. Download this today as it is prefect to work out to or "Ride" to.
