Fire Music is a studio album by Archie Shepp released on Impulse Records in 1965. Malcolm, Malcolm Semper Malcolm is dedicated to Malcolm X, whilst Los Olvidados is a homage to the film of the same name. Overall, this set, even with its faults, is recommended. Hambone Archie Shepp 12:29. Los Olvidados Shepp 8:54. One of forward-looking tenor man Archie Shepp's definitive early albums, 1965's Fire Music set the tone for much of what was to come over the next several years, both in Shepp's own career and in the jazz scene as a whole. Moving far beyond bebop toward more avant-garde realms, Fire Music was simultaneously a central document of the mid-'60s New Thing school of jazz and an arrow that pointed towards the subsequent explorations of Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, et al.

This particular early Archie Shepp recording has its strong moments, although it is a bit erratic. Four selections utilize an advanced sextet. Of these songs, Hambone has overly repetitive and rather monotonous riffing by the horns behind the soloists, and Shepp's bizarre exploration of The Girl From Ipanema gets tedious, but the episodic Los Olvidaos is quite colorful, and the tenorman sounds fine on a spacy rendition of Prelude to a Kiss.
