A review of "Africa Speaks, America Answers" written by Robin D.G. Kelley.



The book, which takes its title from Warren's first album, unearths African and African-American jazz fusions primarily through the lives of four musicians: Warren, Randy Weston, Ahmed Abdul-Malik and Sathima Bea Benjamin. (Its structure is an implicit tribute to a seminal study of modern jazz, A.B. Spellman's Black Music: Four Lives in the Bebop Business published in 1966, which viewed the music through the prism of Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, Jackie Mclean and Herbie Nichols.)
