Archie Shepp & Richard Davis - Live in Verona '11 [New links]

Paraphrasing the title of a song by G.Monchur III (that Shepp
has played countless times) we can say: Archie's back!
It seems that after years of weary routine, the "old lion" is
enjoying a second youth, even thanks to the most appropriate
choice of partners.
Great concert, and exiting the stage, Shepp has candidly admitted
that they forgot to play a B-Flat Blues...

Terrific sound quality! I like Archie's 'looser' latter day sound. Many thanks indeed.

Many thanks for this Shepp/Davis. There can never be too much Archie Shepp! Looking forward to comparing this to their previous recordings.

Archie stays an unique voice of the afroblack diaspora. His tone still sends shivers in the spine & -as you rightly says- recently he's enjoying an indian summer for the good of every music lover. Thks for sharing that beautiful concert!

PS Anybody would kind enough to reupload the 1975 Massy in flac quality: terrific concert!
