Gil Scott-Heron – Pieces of a Man

$53.95 Inc. GST

Pieces of a ManΒ is the first studio album by American vocalist Gil Scott-Heron. It was recorded in April 1971 at RCA Studios in New York City and released later that year by Flying Dutchman Records. The album followed Scott-Heron’s debut live albumΒ Small Talk at 125th and LenoxΒ (1970) and departed from that album’s spoken word performance, instead featuring compositions in a more conventional popular song structure.

Pieces of a ManΒ marked the first of several collaborations by Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson, who played piano throughout the record. It is one of Scott-Heron’s most critically acclaimed albums and one of the Flying Dutchman label’s best-selling LP’s. Earning modest success after its release,Β Pieces of a ManΒ has received retrospective praise from critics. Music critics have suggested that Heron’s combination of R&B, soul, jazz-funk, and proto-rap influenced the development of electronic dance music and hip hop.
