Avant-garde giant Archie Shepp made an indelible contribution to experimental jazz. Double-LP 'The Tradition' was recorded in Rome in 1977 for Horo Records with drummer Clifford Jarvis and bassist Cameron Brown; the raucous 'Hooray For Mal' has shades of be-bop, while Duke Ellington's 'Sophisticated Lady' is largely tackled by Shepp on upright piano (with gorgeous soloing by Brown); 'Things Have Got To Change' hearkens to Shepp's experience of the Pan-African Cultural Festival of Algiers of 1969 and Ellington's 'I Didn't Know About You' is relayed as a soft tenor ballad with rough edges.
