I'll be doing a "political jazz" show for our October fundraiser, so these ideas have been helpful.
One more somewhat obscure cut I like is called "In War, such things happen."? 
It's on the album Bad Mouth by Conjure, from last year.? 
Poetry by Ishmael Reed, music by Kip Hanrahan. Powerful stuff.

Janis Ian's "Ready for the War" is part of John McLean's new album;
while Nigel Kennedy includes a Jack DeJohnette piece called "Story for
World Forgiveness."

Jazz musicians do protest (Doug Wamble's "Blue State" on Marsalis
Music) but the people in general don't get to hear much jazz.
