* Required Fields

The sixteen pieces given rousing interpretations on At Dr. King's Table are among those that the late
Julius Hemphill never got around to recording himself. They are further proof (if proof is needed) that Hemphill was undoubtedly one of the most important and innovative of jazz composers of the post-war era--incorporating the expanded rhythmic and harmonic possibilities of free jazz into richly textured compositions for saxophone ensemble. Of course, chez Hemphill, the blues and gospel are the bedrock from which all of his deeply spiritual music springs. Just listen to What I Know Now, a gorgeous ballad of ineffable eloquence.

Reviews
"At Dr. King's Table is a moving tribute, yet the Julius Hemphill Sextet rapidly develop a distinct persona that is clearly their own, as the band's certitude and warm sentiment is displayed in resplendent fashion.* * * * 1/2" - All About Jazz
