description

Originally released independently in 1979, this ground-breaking album is extremely hard to find and is issued here in glorious expanded form (triple vinyl and double CD) with a bonus track and with all its original striking artwork. This release will be followed next month by Horace Tapscott conducting The Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra release The Call (1978), also re-released on Soul Jazz Records. Soul Jazz Records are proud to release the first in a series of albums by the legendary Los Angeles radical jazz artist, Horace Tapscott and The Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. Horace Tapscott is the key figure in the Los Angeles political and underground jazz scene of the late 20th century - his stridently independent and radical music, as far-reaching, cosmic and spiritual in scope as it was rooted in the Watts community of Los Angeles where he lived. This superb rare, deep and spiritual jazz opus album was recorded at the Immanuel United Church of Christ, Los Angeles, in 1979, and has been unavailable on vinyl for over 40 years. The music of Horace Tapscott and The Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra is part Sun Ra Arkestra, part John Coltrane, part Art Ensemble of Chicago. This ground-breaking and monumental album (released here for the first time ever on expanded triple vinyl and double CD) explores the multi-faceted deep and spiritual jazz of Tapscott - Afro-centric rhythms, hypnotic bass lines, Tapscott's stabbing modal piano playing and stunning flute and horn arrangements. 'The Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra - Live at I.U.C.C.' is a true high point in the cannon of great independent underground jazz music recorded during this era. Tapscott's Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra was set up as a musicians' collective in Los Angeles in the early 1960s, part of the Underground Musicians Association (UGMA), later Union of God's Musicians and Artists Ascension (UGMAA), an umbrella organisation for musicians, poets, dancers and painters in the neighbourhood. Out of this group came many lea
