New York, NY (Top40 Charts / Brigantine Avenue Records) American composer Roberto Domino Basile released an original song entitled, '0-1 September' dedicated to the 20th anniversary of Tom Brokaw's prize-winning literary work entitled, 'The Greatest Generation'. In the Fall of 2017, Basile was moved by a 1939 news article he came across which influenced the song's lyrics. Vocalist Cristina Caro performs on the recording along with string ensemble, 'CutTime Simfonica'. The chorus chronicles a message for modern-day America.
A portion of the 2018 net proceeds will go to an established charitable organization in support of military veterans and their families.
"Our 'latest' generation continues to stand guard in every corner of the world in defense of the freedoms our 'greatest' generation preserved in the mid 20thcentury. As the 'Greatest Generation' gives way to the next, those mid-20th century sacrifices have become less and less a part of the mainstream American psyche. One could argue inadvertent by-products of modern-day freedoms afforded by a previous generation are 'complacency and ignorance', which left unchecked in our politics, can lead to disastrous events. We've heard our teachers say, 'if we do not take time to learn of history, we are destined to repeat it'. Allowing one's self to remain unaware of history, oblivious to 'the price' of freedom, should not be accepted as 'human nature'. It is more accurately, a lack of personal accountability in its purest sense.
If we are fortunate enough to experience the feeling widely known as 'freedom', it's a message from those mortals and immortals before us urging us to leverage that distinct privilege by seeking out and helping those who (through no fault of their own) do not have it." -- Roberto Domino Basile
