Yesterday evening, after the Champions League Final, i read the May issue of Jazz Magazine which has a special anniversary issue on Archie Shepp. Mr. Shepp celebrates his 70th Birthday today. About 15 pages ares dedicated to Mr.Shepp containing an interview with the maestro himself as well as brief pieces by french musicians on the importance of Mr. Shepp in Jazz and the role he played in their carreers.

A special mini cd was also delivered with the issue containing 'Attica Blues'; 'Mama Too Tight' and an exclusive version of his forthcoming cd Gemini called 'The reverse'.
