Program: So Far So Good
“Composer James H. Leary is one of LA’s great geniuses who never got the recognition he deserves, and much of his music has never been performed” as stated by Dwight Trible, artistic director of The World Stage. As part of a very special evening of rarely performed works, Grammy-awardee James H. Leary will use the James Leary Legacy Ensemble in a special program of original compositions: A Song for My Mother – sung by Dwight Trible which is Leary’s tribute to all mothers; Free Flow Tribute will be the main focus of the program, which will feature many different musicians and vocalists in Leary’s oeuvre, and who will come together for this one-night only Compose LA event. As part of this program, James Leary will play the bass and conduct an accompaniment of piano and drums. 
Robin D.G. Kelley is a professor of history and American studies and ethnicity at the University of Southern California. One of the youngest tenured professors in a full academic discipline – at the age of 32 – Kelley has spent most of his career exploring American and African-American history with a particular emphasis on African-American musical culture, including jazz and hip-hop.
