Archie Shepp plays rap

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.

Some rap (with sax solo at 2:20):
