The Black Saint and the Sinnerman
Author/Musician: Harmony Holiday
Publisher: Fonograf Editions (2018)
Charles Mingus’s classic 1963 album The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is swerved into Harmony Holiday’s classic 2018 album The Black Saint and the Sinnerman. The albums are not the same, not at all. But they speak to one and other across time and language, motion and sound.
The Black Saint and the Sinnerman was recorded live at Machine Project in Los Angeles, CA on September 9, 2016. The album was mastered and engineered by Gus Elg at Sky Onion in Portland, OR in the Fall of 2017.
Purchase of The Black Saint and the Sinnerman includes a 11"×11" insert of Holiday’s poem “To the black female children,” as well as a download card for the entire album.
