"Tribute to John Coltrane", by Archie Shepp All Star
Archie Shepp, tenor sax, played with Coltrane and for Coltrane (Ascension, 1965).His "Tribute to John Coltrane", during the Jazz à la Villette festival, September 4, 2016, is nothing short of publicity.Even on Mezzo where "jazz", a question of means, does not necessarily appear in its best light (understatement ...), Archie Shepp (born in 1937) remains a formidable animal of image.
Very classy, dressed to the nines for the sake of the public, impavid, looks as affectionate as attentive to his partners, the great Archie surrounds himself with a rhythm of luxury (Jason Moran on the piano, Richard Davis on the double bass, Billy Hart on drums) and leads a legion of young loyal lions.It's amazing.Amazing when he plays, when he punctuates with a flare… Amazing when he sings Prelude To The Kiss… Amazing when singing, straight to the heart , Marion Rampal (Blasé)… It is possible, even desirable that you get some “jazz” (this old thing) some idea.Go for it on Mezzo.It's not every night that you have the opportunity to be flabbergasted in jazz on television.Francis Marmande
