Elaine Mitchener turns to the black avant-garde and to the overflow of experiment that occurred within improvised music, often springing directly from lived experiences of racial injustice. The repertoire consists of a number of seminal African-American works drawn from the 1960/70s which combine vocals and text with experimental jazz forms and illuminate an occluded moment in American cultural history, when the avant-garde aesthetics of new jazz doubled as a metaphor for the imminent politics of civil rights.

The line-up consists of a group of leading UK jazz musicians brought together by Elaine Mitchener: saxophonist and MD Jason Yarde, trumpeter Byron Wallen, pianist Alexander Hawkins, bassist Neil Charles, drummer Mark Sanders and poet Dante Micheaux, who will be re-interpreting music by Eric Dolphy, Archie Shepp, Joseph Jarman, and Jeanne Lee, amongst others.
