Soul Jazz Records presents - Horace Tapscott with the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra Live At I.U.C.C. (3xLP + Download Card)

Soul Jazz Records are releasing this groundbreaking album by the legendary jazz artist Horace Tapscott & the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. Tapscott is the key figure in the LA political & underground jazz scene of the late 20th century with his stridently independent & radical music. This superb rare, deep & spiritual jazz opus album has been unavailable on vinyl for over 40 years. The music is part Sun Ra Arkestra, part John Coltrane, part Art Ensemble of Chicago & explores the multi-faceted deep & spiritual jazz of Tapscott. The Arkestra was set up as a musicians collective in the early 60s, part of a radical jazz scene on the west coast that included Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman & Eric Dolphy. After his debut in 1969 followed 2 albums with Elaine Brown, the only woman to lead the Black Panther party; Tapscott was a community organiser closely aligned to its LA chapter. In the 90s he inspired a new generation; The West Coast Get Down collective, incl. Kamasi Washington & Thundercat.
