Archie Shepp - Yasmin, A Black Woman (1969)

This fine1969 offering from tenor and soprano saxophonist Archie Shepp finds theartist deep within the progressive, politically charged aesthetics and fiery playing that characterized his best avant-garde work.  
YASMINA marks Shepp's first meeting with members of the Chicago avant jazz scene, namely Lester Bowie and Roscoe Mitchell from the Art Ensemble of Chicago.There are several other guests here, including Philly Joe Jones and Hank Mobley, that make this exploratory set not only an excellent example of heavy late-'60s out jazz, but an unexpectedly swingin' one.
