Attica Blues LP

Archie Shepp

This Impulse! classic is one of the saxophonist’s most lasting and enduring works. With its powerful avant-garde tracks and strong political messages, the album is one of Shepp's most successful large-group projects. Rolling Stone wrote that it is "not just a masterpiece of protest: [...] it is more a political/religious experience, an appeal to higher human consciousness to, for God's sake, help us out of this torment."
