Artist's Description

Archie Shepp is one of the world’s greatest saxophonists and a leading interpreter of the blues in African Arts Music. Influenced by Clark Terry and John Coltrane, Archie emerged, along with John, Pharoah Sanders and Ornette Colemen, as one the strongest and most articulate musical voices in the avante-gard movement during the mid 1960s. Archie is a multi-dimensional man of culture: a saxophonist, pianist, singer, playwtright, poet, and professor of history of revolutionary music. He has been one the champions of African-American culture.

The revolutionary impact is evidenced in ATTICA BLUES. I continue to be deeply impacted by his music is a spiritual inspiration to the creation of my art.

This detailed pencil portrait is 18×24 on off-white achival paper. Sold. On Permanent Exhibition: Arturo’s Jazz Theater, Southfield, MI. It is one of my best works to date.
