The Absolute Sound: Davis X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X - Review

“As is the case with all Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) recordings, this is a thorough and smartly designed package, with insightful program notes and a full libretto. The performance is taut and passionate, with a bold rendition of the title character by the young American bass-baritone Davone Tines, certainly one of the rising stars of his generation. BMOP is led with the vigor and commitment that can almost be taken for granted under the visionary leadership of Gil Rose, here joined by the forces of Odyssey Opera. The recording is clear and spacious.”
