Refining his large-ensemble experiments of 1971, Attica Blues is one of Archie Shepp's most significant post-'60s statements, recorded just several months after authorities ended the Attica prison uprising by massacring 43 inmates and hostages. Perhaps because Shepp's musical interests were changing, Attica Blues isn't the all-out blast of rage one might expect; instead, it's a richly arranged album of mournful, quietly agonized blues and Ellingtonian swing, mixed with a couple of storming funk burners. Of course, Shepp doesn't quite play it straight, bringing his avant-garde sensibilities to both vintage big band and contemporary funk, with little regard for the boundaries separating them all. His soloing on tenor and soprano is typically sharp-edged and modal, and his nasal, slicing tone on soprano is featured quite heavily. The stylishness of the slow numbers is undercut with quivering, faintly unsettling dissonances, and the up-tempo funk cuts recall the way Sly Stone's arrangements ping-ponged many different elements off each other in a gleeful organized chaos. That's especially true on the gospel-inflected title song, a monster of a groove that later became a hit on the acid jazz revival circuit (and stands up to anything recorded by straight-up funk bands of the era). In the same vein, "Blues for Brother George Jackson" sounds like an edgier Isaac Hayes-style blaxploitation soundtrack cut. Vocal ballads are plentiful, and Joe Lee Wilson ("Steam," a song Shepp would return to often) and Carl Hall (aka Henry Hull) both acquit themselves well; more debatable are the poetic recitations and the choice of flügelhornist/composer Cal Massey's young daughter Waheeda to sing "Quiet Dawn" (although Waheeda's almost-there intonation is effectively creepy). Still, in the end, Attica Blues is one of Shepp's most successful large-group projects, because his skillful handling of so many different styles of black music produces such tremendously groovy results.

Impulse! Orange was the new Black

Avec Blue Note et Verve, Impulse! est sans doute le plus célèbre des labels de jazz américains. Une maison peinte en orange et noir qui hébergea bien évidemment John Coltrane mais aussi les musiciens les plus aventureux des sixties et qui fête cette année ses 60 ans.

Jazz : 10 chanteuses contemporaines

Billie, Ella, Sarah et Nina ont beau bercer, toujours et encore, les mélomanes, le jazz vocal reste un archipel peuplé de chanteuses fascinantes, prêtes à porter ce lourd héritage pour l’ancrer dans leur époque. Est-ce toujours du jazz ? À moins que ce ne soit le jazz qui ait changé ? Peu importe. Coup de zoom sur dix femmes choisies en toute subjectivité qui ont imposé leur nom et leur voix.

Marc Ribot, l’anti-guitar hero

Depuis une quarantaine d’années, le nom de Marc Ribot apparaît sur les pochettes d’albums signés Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso et tant d’autres. Et lorsqu’il ne prête pas sa guitare atypique aux plus grands, le New-Yorkais s’amuse, sous son nom, à démonter le rock, le jazz, le funk, la musique cubaine et tout ce qui passe sous ses doigts.
