On the title track, as the Great Voice choir begins Linda Hill’s litany of vital cultural clues to which whites have turned a deaf ear, the audience are not listening. The urgency shuts them up, though, as Tapscott’s Ark always has. This was one of the pianist-composer’s last concerts, and he made it pay with generous, driving expansions on his own tunes and Duke’s “Caravan,” rollicking the 88s and clearing plenty of space for the searing, cutting saxes of Michael Session and the pleading wail of Dwight Trible. This music made a difference.
