Progressive Jazz From A Progressive Movement,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Freedom, Rhythm and Sound: Revolutionary Jazz and the Civil Rights Movement 1963-82 (Audio CD)
I have to admit there are a few tracks on this CD that I'm not so keen on, some of the tracks I would class as Free Form Jazz, its serious and sombre reflecting the times. There are a couple of decent numbers from Ralph Thomas, Archie Shepp and the Pharaohs.I give the ideals of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X 5 star but the music compiled on this CD to represent that era only 4 star, however i still recommend it for collecters.
