Total Articles: 120
Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV - An experienced and creative group of Nashville artists has just released "JFK 50: A Memorial Album" which honors and remembers President John Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of his death by assassination. "JFK 50" includes eight original folk songs and four interspersed tracks of recreated radio newscasts which take the listener back emotionally to the black day that changed world history, November 22, 1963.
The album features country/folk vocalist Charlie Barnes, producer/guitarist Jerry Webb, vocalist Joyce Jewell, harmonica player Joe Pointer, and producer/writer Dan Jewell. These senior artists lived through those tragic days in 1963 and that experience can be sensed in their poignant and memorable performances.
Nashville Producer and two time Grammy winner J. Aaron Brown says, "My lifelong friend Dan Jewell and his talented creative team have recorded a very sensitive and accurate account of the events surrounding the life and death of President John F. Kennedy. A folksy blend of songs and narrations that will touch the hearts of all who experienced that tragic day in November 1963. This documentation is well presented in the new 'JFK 50 Memorial Album,' a must for history buffs and JFK fans around the world."
The initial track on the album is Barnes' rendition of the chilling "The End of November, 1963," which evokes the fear and disillusionment people felt when they heard the news that JFK had been assassinated. "Kennedy's death," says Barnes, "was a powerful international event, but back then it seemed to touch all of us personally." Besides the initial track, Barnes sings "When the News Came Through," "The Golden Cup," "The Day Jack Kennedy Died," "I Got My Dreams Just Like You, "He Was Born to Live," and "Hero."
Brief recreations of radio newscasts from November 1963, provide a narrative line and underscore the emotional impact of the music. The concept album's finale is Joyce Jewell's moving reprise of "The Golden Cup" which captures the mix of hope, tragedy, inspiration, grief, and unfilled promise that JFK has come to symbolize to most Americans." Listeners can sample the album's music on the album website and on You Tube by viewing the haunting video "That Black Day, November 22, 1963," which features the song "He Was Born to Live."
CD Baby is distributing "JFK 50: A Memorial Album" worldwide in MP3 or CD format. The album can be downloaded now from the online CD Baby Music Store, iTunes, and Amazon MP3; in the coming days, Rhapsody, eMusic, Verizon, Spotify, etc. will add the album to their online stores.
