4.50 5

A fierce and full-on session from Archie Shepp – a real return to avant jamming, in a style that recalls his best French work of the late 60s, but which also has some of the soulful touches of his late 70s years! The group features Sigfried Kessler on piano, Clifford Jarvis on drums, and Cheikh Tidiane Fall on voice and percussion on the album's leadoff track "Poem For Mama Rose", part of a very long reading of Cal Massey's excellent tune "Things Have Got To Change" – which is followed by a searing take on John Coltrane's "Giant Steps" – blown with incredible intensity, at a level that's always threatening to shake the tune apart! CD adds 2 more straight ahead and soulful numbers – versions of Horace Silver's "No Smoking", and the standard "You Don't Know What Love Is".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Amazing work from one of the greatest jazz musicians working today – vibist Jason Adasiewicz, a player with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! It's been years since we've been this excited about anyone on the vibes – and Adasiewicz not only returns the instrument to the ... CD

Heavy-jamming fusion from Billy Cobham – done at a time when he was already cutting plenty of heavy-jamming fusion! The album was recorded live in Switzerland and London – all very much in a post Bitches Brew approach to jazz that has all players going pedal to the metal in pursuit of ... CD

A great live recording done for Brazilian TV – one that features Joao in a very stripped-down setting, like the best of his classic recordings! The material is pure bossa – with lots of lovely guitar work, and Joao's soulful vocals right up front in the mix. Rita Lee joins in on the ... CD
