The Tradition
2LP | 1978 | EU (Alternative Fox)
24,99 €*
Release:1978 / EU
Genre:Organic Grooves
Avant-garde giant Archie Shepp made an indelible contribution to experimental jazz. Double-LP The Tradition was recorded in Rome in 1977 for Horo Records with drummer Clifford Jarvis and bassist Cameron Brown; the raucous “Hooray For Mal” has shades of be-bop, while Duke Ellington’s “Sophisticated Lady” is largely tackled by Shepp on upright piano (with gorgeous soloing by Brown); “Things Have Got To Change” hearkens to Shepp’s experience of the Pan-African Cultural Festival of Algiers of 1969 and Ellington’s “I Didn’t Know About You” is relayed as a soft tenor ballad with rough edges.

Archie Shepp
Attica Blues / Quiet Dawn
7" | 2019 | EU | Reissue (Mr Bongo)
16,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Previously Japan-only 7” /// Features two tracks originally released on Shepp's 1972 classic soul-jazz LP, 'Attica Blues' /// A powerful mix of psychedelic soul & jazz that retains Shepp's political sentiment of his earlier works.

'Attic Blues' is a huge funk-soul composition, referring to a mass shooting of inmates at Attica Prison. Henry Hull's vocal sits on top of bass, layered percussion, wah-wah guitars, plus large horn and string sections to create a massive sound.

The big band, almost soundtrack-esque, 'Quiet Dawn’, is sung by the composer's 7-year old daughter. She floats on top of piano, strings, drums and rich layers of percussion.
