Archie Shepp: Blase And Yasmina Revisited

Read "Blase And Yasmina Revisited" reviewed by Chris May


The three albums tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp recorded in Paris for BYG Records during one week in August 1969 tend to get overlooked in the slipstream of the dozen or so he made in the US for Impulse earlier in the decade.

The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake

Read "The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake" reviewed by Duncan Heining


There have been few American composers and musicians, with the ability to encapsulate their country's music in all its racial and ethnic complexity.

In jazz, their number is fewer still--Duke Ellington and George ...
