About the show

Playing tracks by

Archie Shepp .

Archie Shepp (born May 24, 1937) has always been controversial. Part of the black nationalism movement in the sixties, his anger and defiance manifested themselves in such compositions “Malcolm, Malcolm—Semper Malcolm,” from his breakthrough 1965 Impulse! release Fire Music. He blew sax using an aggressive, honking sound, that nevertheless paid homage to the past. Shepp became the jazz world’s Malcolm X. His controversial statements about race relations and justice only added to this perception. This mix begins by showing Shepp’s more funky melodic side, before delving into his more “difficult” music. Give a listen to one of jazz music’s true innovators.

Hopefully I’m trashing the box. Boundaries are too limiting.

Haha! I’m trying NOT to picture that. If I turn people onto new music that is really gratifying. Keep listening!

Never keen on musicians making political statements - it's a pet hate of mine ;) But this guy has such an awesome talent you almost feel obligated in allowing him his voice (unlike the Bono's of the world) :D

You have to put it into the context of the times. The sixties was a very volatile political era. Especially in America with the civil rights movement and the Vietnam war. Many jazz musicians, Max Roach for example, made political statements with their music. Not like today, where certain bands make bland political statements, then put their money in offshore banks to avoid tax! No names, no pack-drill!
