Archie Shepp - Attica BluesRefining his large-ensemble experiments of 1971, this album was one of Shepp's most significant post-'60s statements, recorded just several months after authorities ended the uprising in Attica prison in New York state by massacring 43 inmates and hostages. This is one of his most successful large-group projects, because his skilful handling of so many different styles of black music produced such tremendously groovy results.
