Mama Too Tight opens with one of the great subversive performances in the history of jazz. A horn section vamps over a dance riff that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Quincy Jones soundtrack. The groove is brought to a boil over the course of several minutes, then a lone tenor sax begins to bubble up from the back row; all of a sudden, this outlaw sax is defacing with bleating, untamed blues what previously appeared to be nothing more than pleasant dance

Mama Too Tight begins with Archie Shepp ceremoniously unscrewing your head from your body, an everyday act for this master in the 1960s. Portrait Of Robert Thomson As A Young Man is about as free as Shepp, and jazz, gets. This is in free time, and the whole band plays like Jackson Pollack throwing paint to canvas. There are two more tracks on the album that mix the most free styles with some of the most traditional. All four tracks go down in about forty minutes. A listener would miss the point thinking Mama Too Tight is about Shepp "playing in a wide range of styles" if I may write bad advertising copy. And if I begin to say "but Archie has a style all his own," please come and take my keyboard and demolish it against my skull. Mama Too Tight is just Shepp doing what he does best, playing jazz.
