8/10 Brett Staff review, 19 November 2009
We had the highly satisfying book of Freedom, Rhythm & Sound in a couple of weeks back, stuffed to the gills with amazing cover art from jazz with an apparently 'revolutionary' bent. How much of that actually comes through in the music, packaged by Soul Jazz as either one double CD set or as two double LP volumes, is probably debatable - especially since what's going on musically is often revolutionary enough in itself. As so often with a largely instrumental music (though a fair few vocal tracks appear here) any political emphasis comes purely from the titles (see also: 'No Education=No Future, Fuck the Curfew' and the like) so here we've got The Pharoahs' 'Freedom Time', Sun Ra's 'Nuclear War', Archie Shepp's superb 'Attica Blues' and many more, dating from the beginnings of a more widespread avant-garde in jazz to the back end of the fusion era. Some of these tracks I know and can very happily vouch for, others I'm hearing now and enjoying very much but listening to the entire thing would take far more time than we realistically have so I'll have to sum up by saying that Soul Jazz tend to do a pretty good, if sometimes a little inconsistent, job on these types of compilations and always at a very reasonable price so if you're curious it should be a nice spot to dip your toe in...
