5.0 out of 5 stars Live and uncompromising, 4 Mar 2002
Mr. Dc Fowler "fowlerd17" (Portsmouth UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Archie Shepp Live in San Franc (Audio CD)
Archie Shepp's music is like no other. It somehow spans the whole lifetime of jazz from marching songs forward, and often does this within the space of a single composition. His acomplices here, Roswell Rudd, Beaver Harris et al. are in top form. It is a complex set with the timing and interplay one can only get from master musicians who have worked a while with each other. The sheer exuberance of the performances in a live setting is breathtaking. 'In a Sentimental Mood' is a revelation and exemplifies Shepp's absorption, understanding and demonstration of the many aspects of jazz from its roots to the present day. It's emotional content is uncompromising and speaks of the need for love and justice.
This album is not easy listening but for me remains one of the very best live albums in any genre.
