5.0 out of 5 stars Archie Shepp's neglected masterpiece from 1964., 13 Oct 2012
This review is from: Four For Trane (Audio CD)
Recorded in New Jersey on August 10, 1964, 'Four For Trane' is one of the truly great albums of '60s jazz.
With leader Archie Shepp on tenor saxophone, were Roswell Rudd(trombone), John Tchicai(alto saxophone), Alan Shorter(trumpet), Reggie Workman(bass) & Charles Moffett(drums) playing brilliantly arranged versions of four John Coltrane tunes plus one Shepp original.
The late jazz writer, Keith Shadwick, has described Shepp's soloing as "awash with humanity and humour" a phrase that can be equally applied to much of the powerful, bluesy music on this marvellous album.
'Four For Trane' is a neglected masterpiece that's on a par with Coltrane's famous 'A Love Supreme' recorded a few months later and is essential listening for anyone who appreciates passionate and adventurous modern jazz.
