'My music not only had to sound good, it also had to be able to change existential perspectives,' American saxophonist and civil rights activist Archie Shepp says. He is the dreamed opening act at the Brussels Jazz Festival, which is focusing on 'reflection”'in view of its upcoming 50th anniversary in May 1968.

The post-bop legend, who has lived in Paris for years, turned 80 this year, but continues to inveigh against social injustice with his knuckles, voice, and alto and soprano saxophones. He is coming to Brussels with his quartet, and the documentary that Frank Cassenti made about him in 1984.
