It seems that the world is finally ready for a Rhiannon Giddens crossover. It could certainly use one. Freedom Highway, the roots star's first solo album of original songs, is one of the year's most bracing LPs, an unsparing look at American history that refuses to erase either the brutality of racist oppression or the love and culture that have flourished in the face of it. It's a story Giddens tells not just with her lyrics but with her music, picking her own minstrel-style banjo while incorporating elements of jazz, soul, and hip-hop. This show will end Lincoln Center's "American Songbook" series on a high note.
