SUPPORT ACT: DUO BUSCH / VAN KEMENADE
*** SOLD OUT *** ARCHIE SHEPP QUARTET
AFTERWARDS DJ ALVIZ
Archie Shepp tenor-/sopraansax/zang, Carl Henri Morisset piano, Reggie Washington bas, Steve McCraven drums
One of the great preachers of the tenor sax, with an instantly recognizable sound and a great variety of Afro-American influences, from bop to blues and rap.
‘If Trane is the father, Pharoah: the son, and Ayler: the holy ghost, Archie Shepp is the uncle that no one mentions’ (All About Jazz). Shepp carries the torch of the great preachers of the tenor saxophone, with a warmth and directness that goes back to Don Byas and Ben Webster. The avant-gardist pioneer, whose sound is instantly recognizable, has downplayed his shock tactics in recent years, in favour of a more seductive sound. The message remains intact: the power and spirituality of the music he consequently calls Afro-American. This implies not only gospel or rap, but also bop, ballads and blues.
