My Shepp is short. I DO need some more Shepp. Could have searched on AMG but I prefer to know your recommendations and comments. No general thread on Shepp found at organissimo.
This is what I have from this guy up until now:
As a leader:
Four for Trane (Impulse, 1964)
On this night (Impulse, 1965)
Mama too tight (Impulse, 1966)
The way ahead (Impulse, 1968-69)
Yasmina, a black woman (Charly-Le jazz, 1969)
Attica blues (Impulse, 1972)
As a sideman:
The world of Cecil Taylor (Candid, 1960)
Ascension - John Coltrane (Impulse, 1965)
Love his playing. I would place it (I´d like to know your impressions on this matter, I´m sure you´ll put me in my place if this is nonsense ) between Coltrane and Ayler´s. Sometimes Archie´s near mid-to-late Trane (his phrasing, even his tone) and sometimes I find him near Albert Ayler´s "screaming", short phrases, almost inarticulate crying....
What do you think?
Thanks in advance
