"After two excellent albums for the avant-garde jazz label ESP, and an appearance on John Coltrane's "Ascension," Marion Brown was added to the New Jazz roster on Impulse. Dedicated to his friend, colleague and labelmate, tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp, "Three For Shepp" boasts three stirring Brown originals and three passionately played Shepp covers. The personnel on this December 1, 1966 session is Grachan Moncur on trombone and Sirone on bass for all six songs, Stanley Cowell on piano and Beaver Harris on drums for the Shepp tunes, and Dave Burrell on piano and Bobby Capp (who was nice enough to log-on and give his two cents above) on drums for the Brown originals. Anyone who likes Impulse's avant-garde titles, particularly those by Shepp, will thoroughly enjoy what I believe is Marion Brown's best recording."
A good album

"This is a solid and good free-jazz album. Not a masterpiece like the albums the man he's paying tribute to did but definitely worth listening to. The music is closer to the "ESP"-free jazz sound (brown recorded for that label) than the Sanders/shepp/coltrane approaches."
