About the Album

Freedom is a vital element at the heart of all great jazz. It’s all the more central to the music of the late saxophonist Tiyo Attallah Salah-El, who managed to become a prolific composer, author, and activist while serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole in a Pennsylvania prison for nearly 50 years prior to his passing in 2018. Thanks to the untiring efforts of prison abolitionist Lois Ahrens, who championed Salah-El’s work for nearly two decades, his music can now be heard via exhilarating new arrangements and performances by saxophonist Felipe Salles and his quartet with pianist Zaccai Curtis, bassist Avery Sharpe, and drummer Jonathan Barber.
