22 Jan 2008, 19:57 by beelzbubbaOver at MAC, we put together a listener's list of 25 great albums from a sub-genre of jazz that we felt evinced sounds of the struggle for freedom in Great Black Music. By design, but not explicitly, there's only one lp per artist or the list cold have been complete with Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp, and the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
Herewith, 25 lps/cds that are free in the Great Black Music sense rather than in the Globe Unity Orchestra sense.
Abdullah Ibrahim - African Space Program (1974)
Albert Ayler - Spirits Rejoice (1964)
Archie Shepp - Magic of Juju (1967)
Art Ensemble Of Chicago - Bap-Tizum (1972)
Billy Harper - Capra Black (1973)
Carlos Garnett - Black Love (1974)
Clifford Thornton - Ketchaoua (1969)
Don Cherry - Complete Communion (1965)
Eddie Gale - Eddie Gale's Ghetto Music (1968)
Frank Lowe - The Flam (1975)
Frank Wright Quartet - Church Number Nine (1973)
George Russell - Electronic Sonata for Souls Loved By Nature (1968)
