A fascinating vocal jazz album, Lincoln and the band play sparse, reserved music with some Afrocentric and political themes and content, especially Afro Blue, wherein Lincoln sings about an African prince and is nearly as good as any instrumental recording from Coltrane or Santamaria. Though lacking strong, obvious Afro-Cuban rhythms because the drummer plays so silently, Lincoln’s lyrics are beautiful, shades of delight, cocoa hue, rich as the night, Afro Blue. The song asserts pride and sensuality, a defense of blackness as beautiful, which, for 1959, was quite rare in popular culture.
