Today, music is visual  (Archie Shepp Quotes) In rap music, even though the element of poetry is very strong, so is the element of the drum, the implication of the dance. Without the beat, its commercial value would certainly be more tenuous  (Archie Shepp Quotes) In America, for a brief time, people who followed Coltrane were studied and considered important, but it didn’t last long. The result is that the kind of music I played in the 60’s is completely dismissed in this country as a wrong turn, a suicidal effort  (Archie Shepp Quotes) So, rap has that quality, for youth anyway; it’s a kind of blues element. It’s physical, almost gymnastic. It speaks to you organically. Rap grows out of what young people really are today, not only black youth, but white - everybody  (Archie Shepp Quotes) To some degree, yeah, because I have to play a certain number of originals that might be considered avant-garde material. I realize though, that only a few people in the audience actually know what that music is, or understand it  (Archie Shepp Quotes) All the tenets that I had grown up with were thrown out the window  (Archie Shepp Quotes) You get a show where people are jumping up and dancing, but it’s not a critical event in the sense of profound catharsis.

I play pretty much race music: its about what happened to my father, to me, and what can happen to my kids  (Archie Shepp Quotes) Black music has become a commercial commodity. Live performances are not so accessible as they were previously. It use to be possible to go to the bar on the corner and hear music. It was available for a fifteen cent beer  (Archie Shepp Quotes)
