Howard Wiley has long been a daring, breath-taking saxophonist, a musician of power and passion who holds nothing back in his quest to draw the meaning and emotion out of every note he plays. In his current, fascinating, Angola Project Wiley investigates the roots and legacies of African American prison spirituals, encompassing folk, blues and gospel, with a focus on the songs and stories from the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana, from the 1950s onward.
