Description du produit
Un art radical pour une musique radicale ! En parallèle à l'émergence de la contre culture et du mouvement rock underground dans les années 60 et bien avant la révolution culturelle DIY du courant punk, des artistes tels Sun Ra, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman et The Art Ensemble of Chicago reprenaient le contrôle de leur production artistique en enregistrant, publiant et distribuant eux-mêmes leur propre musique. Cet album compile les principaux artistes du livre sorti avec Gilles Peterson mais aussi quelques perles sorties sur de tout petits pressages de label jazz de l'époque dénichées par Soul Jazz.

This music is a prime example of jazz meeting what was (at the time) known as "black power". African-American jazz artists were starting to pull away from the "entertainer" idea,wanting to be looked upon as true "artists". Turning their back on the mainstream record labels (who didn't really want to know what these artists were up to),these musicians focused on the creation of their own sound and where it would be performed,similar to the "Do It Yourself " era of the 70's punk movement,and even today's self-financed and released music by artists of many genres. This was the era of Dr. Martin Luther King,the (as it was then known) "black-power movement",and an African spirituality,then very much in vogue. These artists,simply,wanted to be known (and taken seriously) as jazz artists. It's a shame that many great jazz musicians/groups left the U.S. for Europe,where they found acceptance and the freedom to play/record their music. However,a number of their ideas are still felt in African-American music of today. In the present,jazz is even being taught in schools and universities,and has an acceptance that was not imaginable in the 60's.
But putting all that aside,this music is so good,so towering in it's feel,that it's hard to imagine jazz listeners not coming away with a new outlook on what these jazz artists were attempting to do through their music. Oftentimes when music is written about,it can seemingly become dry,academic,but this music is alive with emotion that ebbs and flows from track to track. From the opening track,"Africa",by Oliver Lake,through Mary Lou Williams "Miss D.D.",through Archie Shepp's "Attica Blues" (one of the more well known tracks),to Sun Ra's "Nuclear War"(which pulls no punches with their vocal message),to Roy Brooks & The Artistic Truth's "Black Survival",this music speaks volumes about "black" empowerment and freedom in it's day. It is also some very fine jazz from a number of now well known jazz musicians (Amina Claudine Myers,Gato Barbieri & Dollar Brand,Horace Tapscott,Gary Bartz NTU Troop,ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO,and many others) who went on to wider,more (relatively) mainstream acceptance. The combination of strident vocals (with a sometimes soul/funk feel) on several tracks,with fierce high caliber jazz underpinnings, is a hard combination to beat.
Anyone who wants to hear some important,vital,visceral music,that speaks of a time in the U.S. when this music,and these important artists,were either ignored or,relegated to releasing their music on small labels(often self-financed),should pick this wonderful collection up today. This music has a power that's unrelenting in it's forcefulness and feeling. Considering that this music was recorded so many years ago,and still has the power to transfix the listener with it's message (and still be worthwhile listening to as jazz),speaks volumes about the jazz musicians involved,and their quest to be heard and taken seriously.
This is an area that has been neglected in the rush to re-release jazz music of all types in the age of the CD,and the folks at Soul Jazz Records should be commended for undertaking this important area of jazz-a combination of a particular time in U.S. history,and the many jazz musicians who were clamoring to be "heard",both musically and as human beings. This is one of the year's best jazz collection releases. Just as it did in it's day,this wonderful,beautiful,powerful music will grab hold of you,and clamor for repeated listenings. And its well worth it-not only for it's message,and a look into a neglected area of jazz,but because,when everything has been said,its just good music.
As mentioned above, this is a good match for the Max Roach "We Insist".
Perhaps where jazz would be is white people hadn't diluted and put it on a detour. No sell outs here!
