[EN] The American vocalist and actress Abbey Lincoln first gained recognition in the 1950s under the name Gaby Lee as a pop singer and film actress (The Girl Can't Help It). In the late 1950s, she married drummer Max Roach and participated with him in several important recordings with Sonny Rollins, Coleman Hawkins, Benny Golson, and others. It was the fabulous "Freedom Now Suite," recorded in 1960 with Max Roach, that made her famous with the general public. Twenty years later, associated with another great African-American dissident, saxophonist Archie Shepp, in Paris, she created this historic album for the Marge label, one of the most beautiful meetings between two legendary figures of contemporary jazz.

[FR] La vocaliste et comédienne américaine Abbey Lincoln s’est fait connaître dans les années 1950 sous le nom de Gaby Lee en tant que chanteuse de variétés et actrice de cinéma (La Blonde et moi).
À la fin des années 1950, mariée au batteur Max Roach, elle participe avec lui à plusieurs enregistrements importants avec Sonny Rollins, Coleman Hawkins, Benny Golson … C’est la fabuleuse « Freedom Now Suite », enregistrée en 1960 avec Max Roach, qui la rendra célèbre auprès du grand public. Vingt ans plus tard, associée à Paris à un autre très grand contestataire afro-américain, le saxophoniste Archie Shepp, elle réalisera pour le label Marge cet album historique, l’une des plus belles rencontres entre deux figures légendaires du jazz contemporain.
