Haseeb Iqbal - Gil Scott Heron special with Ché Scott-Heron // 16-11-19

Haseeb Iqbal - Gil Scott Heron special with Ché Scott-Heron // 16-11-19

Chart positions

This show was 7th in the global funk chart, 12th in the global soul chart and 29th in the global hip hop chart.

This month, Haseeb celebrates the life of legendary poet, musician and activist Gil Scott-Heron, joined in the studio by his daughter, Ché Scott-Heron.

One of the most important African American voices in history and the precursor to all rap and hip-hop, both Haseeb and Ché map the incredibly fascinating life of Mr Scott-Heron.

Navigating the context of his hugely political voice, we hear personal anecdotes of what he was like as a father, how he and Stevie Wonder setup the petition to make Martin Luther King’s birthday a public holiday, succeeding, as well as how his father was the first-ever black player to play for Celtic FC.

The Soul Preacher

... listened in two steps ... just because the question came up. "I Think I'll Call It Morning" is on his second album "Pieces Of A Man" from 1971. The first album was "Small Talk At 125th And Lenox" in 1970. Both on the Flying Dutchman Label ... thanks again

The Soul Preacher

Thanks for sharing this. I can see a little bit of Gil in Ché's face and I saw her Dad --`The Minister of Information' -- live at the Quasimodo in Berlin around 1986 and collected all of his music ever since. His 'Who'll Pay Reparations on My Soul?' gives me chills every time. Priceless! Thanks sooooo much!

Just found another concert ticket. September 13, 1988 at Quartier Latin on Potsdamer Street in Berlin. GIL SCOTT-HERON & Amere Facade. Ticket price 21 DM (10€). I was there!

Haseeb, excellent show! So great to hear his daughter and listen to many of his less popular but solid songs.
