William Grant Still

May 11, 1895 - December 3, 1978
born in Woodville, MS, composed during the Modern period
Once called "The Dean of African-American composers," William Grant Still (1895-1978) started out as an arranger for dance orchestras while he continued to study serious composition with Edgard Varèse and George Whitefield Chadwick. Still's Symphony No. 1, the "Afro-American" (1931) swiftly established his reputation as America's most prominent black classical composer. Still answered it with a vast catalogue, consisting of operas, orchestral works, chamber music, children's piece and a number of socially conscious vocal works. However, Still felt shut out from New York's classical establishment owing to race, particularly after the lukewarm critical reception of his opera Troubled Island in 1949. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

So beautiful. but under the smooth flow, you can also feel the sadness behind.
Some of the harmony reminds me of mccoy tyners playing. Or mccoy reminds me of Still. Either way, gorgeous.
I have this collection of pieces by William Grant Still. Discovering his work was the equivalent of finding a most precious hidden treasure.

Wonderfully relaxing piece
So languid smooth and soulful and an under currant of sadness.
Love his music.
