Product Type: VINYL LP

Vinyl LP pressing. Soul Jazz Records' new release Soul of A Nation: Jazz is the Teacher, Funk is the Preacher is a powerful collection of radical jazz, street funk and proto-rap made in the era of Black Power (1969-75). This is the secondSoul of A Nation album released by Soul Jazz Records and coincides with the exhibition Soul of a Nation - Art in the Age of Black Power. The album features a number of important and ground-breaking African-American artists -The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Don Cherry, Funkadelic, Gil Scott-Heron and more - alongside a host of lesser-known artists all of whom in the early '70s were exploring new Afro-centric poly-rhythmical styles of music - radical jazz, street funk and proto-rap - while at the same time exploring the Black Power and civil-rights inspired notions of self-definition, self-respect and self-empowerment in their own lives.
