Lyrics © 1994 The Estate of Langston Hughes.

“. . . Mr. Hatfield’s monumental homage . . . not only takes Mr. Hughes’ poetry across musical topography that it has never traversed before, but Mr. Hatfield also fuses the music of greater America in one of the most contemporary tributes to an artist of another generation. . . . Mr. Hatfield deserves special credit for the compositions, and, above all else, his exquisite arrangements.
