things cannot stop forever is a jazz funk number that defies categorization, we can only approximate its sound by describing it as something the mizell brothers might have produced, had they kept the edginess that defined their early 70s work throughout the decade. perfect for the soul cal line, this 12inch contains two new, davis approved mixes of things cannot stop forever, a knocking, beefed up version of daviss original mix, and an instrumental remix by egon and kelldada on the flip.
this album features the work of revolutionary jazz artists who created new radical music infused with the values of martin luther king, malcolm x and the civil rights movement of the 1960s. self-determination, economic power and musical freedoms explode as the avant-garde collided with black power and afro-centricity.
released to coincide with the new book by gilles peterson and stuart baker on soul jazz records, this album is jam-packed with super rare, deep jazz from artists many of which all feature heavily in the new book. these include mary lou williams, art ensemble of chicago, sun ra, phil cohran and many more.
the vinyl comes on two super-loud, super-heavy double-album volumes.
