'Jost may have had Fire Music and Mama Too Tight in mind when he suggested that by 1965 Shepp spoke “basically two musical languages whose grammar and syntax had hardly any- thing in common.” This reflected the commentariat’s insistence that a chasm existed between free jazz and mainstream jazz practices, and, implicitly, between the New Wave in Jazz and the New Breed led by James Brown. What was revolutionary about Shepp’s music is that it rejected the underlying binary, and embraced an inclusive approach.'  – Bill Shoemaker
