Johnny Lytle

Artist: Johnny Lytle
LP: Be Proud
Song: "Be Proud (Of What You Are)"
[ listen ]
Song: "You've Got to Love the World"
[ listen ]
Song: "Sit Tight"
[ listen ]

These songs by jazz vibraphone master Johnny Lytle seem to embody the positive message of human rights master Martin Luther King, Jr. The album was released in 1969, a year after King was killed, but if he'd been alive, I bet he would have liked listening to this one.
