A Live Musical Journey Through the Music of the Civil Rights Era

Liner Notes is educational, multi-generational, and most importantly, interactive!

Exploring music inspired by the Civil Rights Movement during the 50s and 60s, the show features songs that will get you dancing on your feet like Ray Charles “What’d I Say,” protest songs like “A Change Is Gonna Come,” and spirituals like “This Little Light of Mine.”

Always striving to care for its audiences, Liner Notes revisits an adverse time in our history with authenticity, thoughtfulness and integrity. The ensemble of the show cultivate a safe space where the audience can explore music on a deeper level to make meaningful connections. Audiences love this show because they get to see this era of music performed with such electrifying joy.

The Corner Store Jazz quintet plays in front of a multimedia design that includes album artwork and original video design. Over the course of the performance, liner notes are read from the original albums, including the artistic statements of John Coltrane and Sam Cooke. This show has inspired audiences for over seven years as crowds get up on their feet, sing, reminisce and connect to those around them. You haven’t seen community quite like the one created at a Liner Notes show.
