Archie Shepp & Philly Joe Jones.France: America Records, 1970 Stock Code: 144515
Signed cleanly by Shepp in blue ball-point pen on a light area of the front cover, incorporating the Swahili word for freedom: "Uhuru! Archie Shepp, 23/2/00".
An interesting and approachable teaming of Shepp, who also features on piano, with Philly Joe Jones, remembered, of course, for his association with Miles's first great quintet, and a trio of the finest free players in Anthony Braxton (alto and soprano, making an early appearance on record), Leroy Jenkins (violin), and Earl Freeman (bass); Julio Finn (harmonica) and Chicago Beau (vocals, soprano and harmonica) also supplied the liner notes. It's not an all-out free jazz shriekfest and shows a clear indebtedness to Mingus.
12-inch vinyl LP (America 30 AM 6102), new plain paper sleeve (original sleeve also present), original album cover.
Some shelf wear and surface rubbing of cover yet remains clean and bright; a few light abrasions to disc otherwise in very good condition.
