“In your status line, list 10 albums that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take more than a few minutes and don’t think too hard – they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you.”
Few years ago I’ve seen wonderful Archie Shepp in concert. Even though he’s not, to say the least, young (born in 1937) he was so energetic and full of drive, pure fire. Recently I found very unusual disk by him: “Phat Jam in Milano”, recorded in 2007 (yes, he was 70 years old at that time). This is a live recording with Napoleon Maddox (yes, a rapper). Very interesting, I’d say.
