Format: Audio CD
That Sharrock sound is worth pursuing anywhere. 'Guitar' and 'Ask The Ages' are great but 'Black Woman' is of a different magnitude. And mass. And electricity. An unfenced domestic at a gallop with Milford Graves on drums. Linda squealing over free-folk-surf-space music with chamber gashes. 'Bialero' is a memory that never existed. Volts, hearts, throats gushing about something inexpressably lost. It's the yard, the sunlit borders, the younger you. One of my favourite records.

This is great stuff! never been too enamoured with free jazz, find all that honking gets on my nerves but here is a record( and do buy the vinyl!) that has no horns but is free! It moves from tender melodies to linda gabbing and babbling in such a way that you can only smile at the audacity, there are little guitar pieces, hints of latin and whole lot of other stuff just swirling around, its great

I bought the £2.99 download and consider this a bargain. I've only listened once so far but I like the album very much. I thought "Bailero" (by Canteloube) was a little weak as Linda Sharrock's vocal style does not compare well with that of a classical singer such as Kiri Te Kanawa for instance.

The album is well worth a listen at this price although I would not spend the £19.99 required for the CD vesion.

Classic oddity from Mr. Sharrock 20 Jun 2000
By Dave Lang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A record so rare it's almost mythical finally gets the reissue treatment... and of course it took the Japanese to do it (why no American release! ). Anyway, originally released in 1969 to utter befuddlement from the jazz community, the 31 minutes of screaming, wailing and general vocal/guitar torture on this disc have found a safe, loving home within the "out-rock" community over the last 30 years, mostly amongst those with a weakness for some no-wave/skronk/industrio/punk action, if you know where I'm coming from. Produced by none other than Herbie Mann, honky flute-player extraordinaire (Sharrock was playing guitar in his band at the time for "money reasons"), "Black Woman" is - musically speaking - a real tough disc to pin down. Featuring a stellar line-up that includes free-jazz legends Milford Graves and Dave Burrell on drums and piano, respectively, and Linda Sharrock (Sonny's wife) on "vocals", the music is a curious mix of free-jazz thump, psychotic gospel vocalese, flamenco/calypso guitar stylings and a serious dose of proto-No Wave screech. Most of all, it works, and works well. The two best tracks, the title song and the scorching "Portrait of Linda in Three Colours, All Black", reach thunderous ascensions in sound, where all the player whollop and wail in unison to various ecstatic peaks, leaving one drained yet craving more. Talking of more, what about a reissue of Sharrock's similarly classic "Monkey Pockie Boo" LP from '70? Imagine, if you a will, a mix between Hendrix, Yoko Ono and Cecil Taylor, and that's somewhere near "Black Woman"'s universe. Such beautiful noise...

I think maybe I don't get it 24 Jun 2006
By Maury C. Cavendish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a huge sharrock fan, all of his other solo work(especially ask the ages)and the stuff he has done with pharoah and other groups is some of my favorite music, and I'm also not predjudiced against "free-jazz" as the critics label it(eric dolphy is my hero, and I love ornette coleman)but I just dont get this album, the songs seem like they are going to come together and start really jamming at one point or another in pretty much every track, but they just continue noodling around with no solid rythm or melody or solos or anything, the whole album just sounds like the five people noodling around aimlessly in the same key while they drummer just plays random rythms on the toms, maybe there is something really great or worthwhile on this album that I havent picked up on, but I just dont get the point of any of this music, plus its not enjoyable or energetic, get ask the ages instead is my advice.

you should get this cd, it's dope 5 May 2006
By H. Nguyen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this was my first sonny sharrock album and i was very pleasently surprised. yes, it's supposed to be a challenging avant garde record, but i found it very easy to listen to (great background music). sonny's wife (on the vocals) adds a very soothing quality to the sometimes chaotic music (and vice versa, she can sound pretty crazy at times). i would highly recommended this one, even for those who don't like avant garde and free jazz (and it's well packaged, the cd booklet is made of plastic not paper! great linear notes too)

WOW 13 April 2006
By J. Matz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A lot of free jazz, no matter what spiritual context the players were intending, dwells in the dark depths of human emotion, and the altissimo screams of saxophone and cacophonus piano pounding seem to burst forth with anguish and pain. Not so this album, which, while very challenging musically, appears to be an expression of pure love and joy-- even ectasy. "Black woman" is also incredibally soulful, something lost in a lot of "free music." Sharrock's playing casts him as the forefather of skronk-- but it's also surprising melodic. At one point during "portrait of linda in three colors, all black" i found myself moved to the point of vocalizing a loud "yeah!," with no one around to hear. a moving experience, and a must for fans of cecil taylor, ornette, shepp (especially, who's music seems to have a similar joyous tone to it) and heck, even modern noisemongers like sonic youth (who undoubtedly owe a debt to sonny.) Stunning and beautiful.

Not For The Faint of Heart!!! 16 May 2009
By SRV Guitar Storm - Published on Amazon.com
Warm up.... Warm up to the concepts of Black Woman, because you will have to. Sonny Sharrock is not for everybody, and none wrings more true to that statment than, Black Woman. If you like Sonny's late 1980's albums you will say, "Where's he at?, I don't hear him." I found listening harder as a Sharrocker, because the distorted waves of brutel, in-your- face terror, were just not there.
And, Linda's voice was not helping me out any. As time goes on, you warm up to different kinds of music, and that's what I had to do. So, with that being said, if you like Sonny, go for "Blind Wille." If you like deep artsy; experimental music, then go for the whole album.
