We, too, have something penned by Lucy Terry, born in Africa in the 18th Century, and deemed to have produced the oldest known work of literature by an African American. Also, since April is Jazz Appreciation Month, “For the People” share another live recording from this year’s Winter JazzFest (www.winterjazzfest.com) held in NYC back in January, as well as music and conversation with the Junius Courtney Big Band (www.juniuscourtneybigband.com), which appear on the 12th April in Berkeley at the Freight and Salvage (www.thefreight.org). That and more, along with ticket giveaways (Lady Rizo at the Great American Music Hall—this week, the Junius Courtney Big Band at the Freight and Salvage—this week, and Vieux Farka Toure (www.vieuxfarkatoure.com), at Yoshi’s (www.yoshis.com).
