Pushkin, Blackamoor of Peter the Great (2006)


“An intriguing clash of the incongruous cultural strands of Russian poet and writer Alexander Pushkin whose fascination for black history stemmed from his lineage back to his great-grandfather being Alexander the Great, himself a former slave, and the hard blowing brilliance of saxophonist David Murray. Telling Pushkin’s story, through his texts, music, and visuals, there’s an international cast from the US, Cameroon, Angola, France and Russia all fired up by Murray’s superlative jazz ensemble”
