Archie Shepp & Bill Dixon Quartet

Archie Shepp & Bill Dixon Quartet

Regular price
Sold out
Sale price
$24.99

Originally released in 1962. The debut as a leader for both Archie Shepp and Bill Dixon, two formidable members of the free jazz and avant-garde elite. Rounding out the quartet are bassists Reggie Workman and Don Moore, and drummers Paul Cohen and Howard McRae, each on various tracks. While the album undoubtedly swings, this piano-less quartet definitely prefigures the trailblazing free jazz work the two leaders would be involved in for the remainder of the decade, and beyond. An essential piece of early free jazz.

New/sealed, 2017 German pressing on Jeanne Dielman.
