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 Attica prison uprising 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 produces such tremendously groovy results.
