Recorded in 1972, Archie Shepp’s album “The Cry of My People” features a core band including Leroy Jenkins, Cornell Dupree, Jimmy Garrison, and Charles McGhee, and incorporates a diverse array of elements, much like his “Attica Blues.” With the addition of gospel singers, big bands, quintets, and more, including guest musicians like Harold Mabern, Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, and Ron Carter, Shepp explores a wide spectrum of music styles. The album combines R&B, soulful gospel, and complex modal arrangements, striking a balance between urban jazz and avant-garde free jazz. It’s a compelling and soulful work that reflects Shepp’s ability to blend various influences into a cohesive whole. The remastered version is a timely release, offering excellent sound quality and packaging.
