A very special tribute paying respect to the pioneering and ground-breaking artist, Gil Scott-Heron, who passed away on Friday 27 May 2011. Entropy this week celebrates bona fide legend of a human being who had a prolific career which included at the very least, ten superb albums.
His prolific and diverse nature saw his records delve through and explore soul, funk, jazz, poetry, blues and many of these genres' offshoots and sub-genres; almost always with a questioning awareness and subversive commentary on the social and political environment of the US at the time, particularly poverty, the plight of African Americans and the oppressed in general.
We hope you enjoy this retrospective of the great poet and musician's life and music, presented by Andy Watt.
Rest in Peace Gil Scott-Heron.
