Title: BLACK SWANS: Earliest African-American Classical Stars
Artist: Burleigh, Harry / Boatner, Edward / Talbert, Florence
Label: Parnassus
UPC: 602003687310
Genre: Classical Vocal Crossover

An amazing revival of a lost area of African American cultural history: classical music performances from the early part of the 20th century. These souvenirs of the earliest such commercial recording ventures showcase forgotten examples of a great culture's accomplishments. The engineering and re-mastering, along with the exquisitely researched and annotated accompanying booklet are the joint labor of love of the Parnassus triumvirate team of Leslie Gerber, Tim Brooks, and Steve Smolian, making BLACK SWANS in my list, at least one of the top albums of the year.
