Remembering Alabama

alabama_church

 

In a article posted on AL.com, Mark Almond recalls the 1963  bombing Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church; the event that inspired Coltrane’s extraordinary jazz lament, “Alabama.” I highly recommend you read article and then make time to watch this rare live version of the Coltrane piece.
