Nel 1972 Archie Shepp usciva con Attica Blues album accolto con favore dal pubblico ma liquidato senza tanti complimenti dalla critica che rimproverò a Shepp la virata verso una commercializzazione e semplificazione eccessiva della sua proposta musicale, salvo poi negli anni successivi rivalutarlo ampiamente e consideralo un significativo manifesto dei cambiamenti in corso nella black music ...

Archie Shepp/Siegfried Kessler: First Take

The disc begins with the 22-minute sojourn of “Les Matin de Noirs" ("The Morning of the Blacks"). A surprisingly smooth ride, considering its ...
