Bob Butta long ago established himself as a pianist deserving greater recognition. Now that he's released his first recording of straight-ahead jazz as a leader, he no longer has to rely on word of mouth to promote his talent and interests. The music on "Windows" speaks volumes.

The artists will speak about the music that resonates with them during this historic moment in our country, and perform songs and ensembles by Margaret Bonds, Hall Johnson, Bernice Johnson Reagon and more.
