Archie Shepp means a lot to me. I've met him a few times and I've loved him for a very long time. He's a great saxophonist. He comes up from the era of angry music, in a way, but there's a humor to what he does. He's very influenced by Ornette Coleman but he has his own sound which is, in fact, rather anachronistic... I don't know about my "favorite jazz musician," he may be that, but he's certainly my favorite man playing jazz.

– Robert Wyatt
