God bless Archie Shepp. The dude will just try anything, wear any hat: black millitent, professor, bluesman, and avant-garde firebrand. I even have a Zappa live album where Archie jams with Uncle Frank and his band.
And the money shot is, Archie does everything he tries very well, and never better than on the deep soul music of Attica Blues. Attica was made inright after the infamous prison riot, and is second to none in its painting of race relations during the era: the only compitition it really has is Gene McDanials Headless Heros of the appocolypse.
It has roaring backup singers, and James Jermont on bass. Many tracks are Sly Stone-like materal, others proudly eccho Curtis Mayfield; funk up there with the greats. Shepp is, of course, primarly known as a jazz musician, but his grasp of black music is so comprehensive and wide ranging, he makes everything he does genuine, and essential. Add that to the uncompromising politics of the album and the potency is just amazing. An illistration: Listen to a George Thorgood album and then go back to Muddy Waters, and you'll understand the differance between immatation and essence.
Archie creates essence in most of his work, and there is no better example then Attica Blues. See all 15 customer reviews. Write a customer review. Customers who bought this item also bought. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Mama Too Tight. The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul.

In the 60s political sentiments had been central to the work of musicians like Archie Shepp, Max Roach and John Coltrane.
As the Steam (Part 2) - Archie Shepp - Attica Blues dawned, mainstream black music made those sentiments explicit. While many jazzers adopted the innovations of James Brown, Sly Stone et al, most did it at a purely musical level. Shepp could have just added a spot of electric funk to his usual arsenal of free jazz, R'n'B and romantic Ellingtonia. Instead with 's Attica Blues he created a furious, tender blast of faintly psychedelic soul jazz that's a jewel in his vast, uneven discography.
The opening title track refers to the shooting of43 inmates at the Attica Prison riot some months before.
