Gil Scott-Heron – Free Will, Vinyl LP
Factory sealed Vinyl LP.
His music combines elements from funk, jazz, soul and Latin American music. He founded Spoken Word and is therefore one of the most important pioneers of hip hop and rap music. His texts are shaped by political or social content. Gil Scott-Heron is rightly considered one of the most influential musicians in the history of black music over the past 40 years. Bob Thiele (Flying Dutchman) enabled him to record his first album in 1970. According to No. 2 "Pieces Of A Man" was quickly followed by "Free Will", for which he wrote the songs with Brian Jackson.
With the backing musicians Bernard Purdie, Hubert Laws, Gerry Jemmott and David Spinozza, this album marked a turning point in socially critical, black soul music.
