The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Saxophone player, composer, pianist, singer, politically committed poet, playwright: Archie Shepp is a legend – making this PDX Jazz Festival concert a must-see. Shepp populates his musical world with themes and stylistic elements provided by the greatest voices of jazz: from Ellington to Monk and Mingus, from Parker to Siver and Taylor. His technical and emotional capacity enables him to integrate the varied elements, and his play consistently deepens the spirit of the two faces of the original black American music: blues and spirituals.
