Henry's Freedom Box, by Ellen Levine and Kadir Nelson - not a review
Now, I all but worship the ground my fellow Pratt Institute alum Kadir Nelson walks on - everything the man puts out there, from Please, Puppy, Please to Ellington Was Not a Street, feels strong and real, three-dimensional, direct, and friendly. Plus his colors are lovely. He deserves all the awards and fame and accolades that have been heaped upon him.
But every time I pass by Henry's Freedom Box face-out on the shelf, I think those little birdies are flying in one ear and out the other.
