Shepp's still aflame!

"This 1994 Geneva performance is a must have. Shepp still has his chops here and that energy is still fierce. Very well filmed and interesting to watch him continue to work with polyphonic approaches to the horn. Assisted by Horace parlan, Wayne Dockery, and Steve McCraven the performance is tight. Most of which Shepp and his friends play are blues. Seems he's returning to his roots here. Call it a reclaimation if you will, but you won't find the avant-garde pulse he was working with in the 60's. That's all right as he continues to play here with both deep heart and passion."
