Alternative Fox present a reissue of Archie Shepp's The Tradition, originally released in 1978. Avant-garde giant Archie Shepp made an indelible contribution to experimental jazz. Double-LP The Tradition was recorded in Rome in 1977 for Horo Records with drummer Clifford Jarvis and bassist Cameron Brown; the raucous ''Hooray For Mal'' has shades of be-bop, while Duke Ellington's ''Sophisticated Lady'' is largely tackled by Shepp on upright piano (with gorgeous soloing by Brown); ''Things Have Got To Change'' hearkens to Shepp's experience of the Pan-African Cultural Festival of Algiers of 1969 and Ellington's ''I Didn't Know About You'' is relayed as a soft tenor ballad with rough edges.
