Some of the most exciting jazz albums to listen to are those that try to strike a middle ground between the mainstream and the avant-garde. One such example is Archie Shepp's Fire Music, an often-fascinating album, rich in compositional and improvisational prowess. Employing a sextet including drummer Joe Chambers and alto saxophonist Marion Brown, Shepp puts together a record that is both challenging and accessible to most listeners. An added bonus here is a live version of "Hambone" recorded in March of 1965.
