Some jazz lovers find Archie Shepp 'heavy going'. This cd is a light blues based way into the sound of this jazz giant. The combination of Shepp and Horace Parlan is amazing. I owned this on vinyl many years ago and was so pleased to see/hear it again on cd. For guitar players, it is great to jam along!

This is one of the most sensitive and compelling albums of blues played on the sax

HASH(0x8d68f8d8) out of 5 stars Carved in granite 26 April 2003
By Dai Kaili - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Shepp, who is also a playwright, brings an immense sense of dramatic gesture to jazz. There is no finer statement of the blues rhetoric than "Backwater Blues" on this CD, and no saxophone notes were ever more dignified, carved out of rock than those on 'St James Infirmary.' The soprano playing (more or less every other track) is also powerful and individual. Horace Parlan (piano) is a marvel of elegant, dignified rhythmic balance, on this as on "Goin' Home," making these two wonderful additions to the jazz duet library. It is great to see these titles on, where their absence for several years really made one wonder.

HASH(0x8c16203c) out of 5 stars A deep pool of goodness 6 Aug. 2005
By Isaac Laughlin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Archie Shepp's best known records could be described as 'important'. This album is not similarly important in a political sense, nor in the sense that it charts new territory for jazz music. It is however a beautiful record.

It's easy to imagine Mr. Shepp and Mr. Parlan playing these songs after a typical fiery gig at four am with chairs on tables as their only audience, aside from a lone broom-wielder. It's a romantic idea, but not any more romantic than the music on this album. Archie Shepp's usual tendency towards pyrotechnics and avant-adventures makes this album's sparce no nonsense treatments of gospel standards that much more fascinating.

While a survey of Mr. Shepp's discography will quickly reveal that he was well versed in all jazz idioms, it's nonetheless remarkable to hear him confining himself to a much earlier set of styles than those which made him (or he made) famous (see Four for Trane, Live in San Fransico, Fire Music). Here it's Ben Webster that comes across as the primary influence (he is more himself -albeit restrained- on soprano), and Mr. Shepp demonstrates that he is very comfortable in this idiom, without sounding derivative.

That Horace Parlan would make a record like this is less surprising, and on some tracks he serves to rein Mr. Shepp in when he seems to be at risk of overstepping the bounds of the traditional songs. This push and pull between the players makes for an interesting record. One that both those who love, and those who can't stand Mr. Shepp's better known records, will find enjoyable.

HASH(0x8c1627c8) out of 5 stars One of the best Jazz CDS I have 11 Jan. 2008
By Electric Eclectic - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have several thousand CDS and now mainly listen to jazz. Of the several hundred jazz CDS I own this is one of the best. If you like strong performances in a straight ahead style then you need to check this one out. I love to listen to it over my Sennheiser headphones. It sounds good on my speakers, but it really deserves a quality presentation. I am thinking of buying a tube headphone amp and this will be the first CD I play. I have two other CDS by Shepp and this is best of the three. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x8ca4b87c) out of 5 stars Song titles are mislabeled!! please fix. 25 Dec. 2009
By Bruce McL - Published on
I have enjoyed this album for many years. I was going to send this link to a few friends when I noticed that the songs were mislabeled. The songs are in their original order but the names have been messed up badly. For the original names go here:


01 Backwater Blues
02 Trouble In Mind
03 Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out
04 Careless Love Blues
05 How Long Blues
06 Blues In Thirds
07 When Things Go Wrong
08 Goin' Down Slow
09 Courthouse Blues
10 C. C. Rider
11 Make Me A Pallet On The Floor
12 St. James Infirmary

Please, Amazon, fix your listings. This music deserves to be heard and known for what it is.

Shepp and Parlan are both wonderful musicians. They did a second album of duets, Goin' Home, of gospel songs that is also wonderful.
