Sonny Sharrock / Black Woman

(Vinyl LP – Superior Viaduct)

“Originally released on the Vortex label in 1969, Black Woman may be the universe’s first true statement of guitar skronk majesty. It also represents Mr. Sharrock’s first date as a leader and stands as the sole documentation of a band that well-understood the essentials of energy. Besides Sharrock’s explosive guitar, the band features the omni-directional percussion mastery of Milford Graves (then in the midst of recording Love Cry with Albert Ayler), the gorgeous post-tongue vocalizing of Sonny’s then-wife Linda Sharrock, the sinuous bass presence of Norris Jones (later known as Sirone) and some of the most explicitly abstract piano work ever recorded by Dave Burrell.”
