Archie is an absolute don, in this shop's ears one of the GOATs, taking bits of funk, of African music, blues, free jazz, soul, avant garde and the theatrical but never too much. A unique voice, always a blend of styles that are uniquely Shepp. 
This record goes deep but also bangs and it's a sweet analog tape mastering, so it's a legit sound too!

These 1969 recordings (released 5 years later) combine Shepp’s free jazz bonafides and a blend of blues and funk through an African lens, all in a big band setting. The all-star brass section, featuring James Spaulding and Charles Davis on sax along with trombonist Graham Moncur III lead the way on stand outs including “New Africa” and “Spoo Pee Doo”.

This Verve By Request LP features transfers from analog tapes and remastered on 180-gram vinyl, pressed at Third Man in Detroit.
