Soul Jazz Records Presents: Freedom, Rhythm And Sound Volume One - Various Artists on Import 2LP
Revolutionary Jazz and the Civil Rights Movement 1963-82!
This album features the work of revolutionary jazz artists who created new radical music infused with the values of Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Self-determination, economic power and musical freedoms explode as the avant-garde collided with Black Power and Afro-centricity. Released to coincide with the book by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker on Soul Jazz Records, this album is jam-packed with super rare, deep jazz from artists many of which all feature heavily in the book. These include Mary Lou Williams, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Sun Ra, Phil Cohran and many more. The vinyl comes on two super-loud, super-heavy double-album volumes.
