Picked by WIRE magazine as one of the 100 records which set the world on fire, 1970s-era Miles Davis guitarist Sonny Shamrock's LP was released in 1969 and produced by Herbie Mann, who loved Sharrock's uncompromising blasts of atonal guitar with Mann's own band. Recorded with N.Y. free jazz musicians Dave Burrell, Norris Jones, Ted Daniel and Milford Graves, the LP features Sonny's with Linda on Yoko Ono-style vocals. There's plenty of soul and gospel influences and a slight pop element counterpoint to Sonny's aggressive guitar and Linda's wails. Originally released on Atlantic Records.
"Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out your horn. They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But, man, there's no boundary line to art." - CHARLIE PARKER
