The Way Ahead was a turning point for Archie Shepp. For starters, he had looked all over the jazzimprov arena for the proper combination of players - without a piano. One can speculate that this was because he cut his first teeth with pianist Cecil Taylor, and that could ruin anybody for life. Recorded in 1969, The Way Ahead featured Ron Carter on bass, Grachan Moncur III's trombone, Jimmy Owens' trumpet, and drums by either Beaver Harris or Roy Haynes, with Walter Davis, Jr. on piano. The set is a glorious stretch of the old and new, with deep blues, gospel, and plenty of guttersn. Archie Shepp - The Way Ahead 1967. To favorites 2 Download album. Listen album.
