About “Richard Pryor Reprise”
“Richard Pryor Reprise” is a hidden song by Joe Henry from his album Scar.
A reprise of the first track, “Richard Pryor Addresses a Tearful Nation,” written by free jazz artist Ornette Coleman.
Joe Henry’s sixth album, Scar, released in 2001, is a stunning achievement of songwriting, musicianship, and storytelling. The album features a who’s who of musicians, including jazz legend Ornette Coleman, guitarist Marc Ribot, and drummer Brian Blade, among others. Scar is a departure from Henry’s previous albums, with a more stripped-down and intimate sound that allows his lyrics and vocals to shine.
The songs on Scar are deeply personal and introspective, dealing with themes of love, loss, and self-discovery. Henry’s lyrics are poetic and often cryptic, drawing on literary references and metaphors to convey his emotions. The music is equally impressive, with a blend of folk, country, and jazz influences that creates a unique and captivating sound.
Scar is a masterpiece of contemporary singer-songwriting, showcasing Joe Henry’s incredible talent and artistic vision. It is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates thoughtful, evocative music that explores the complexities of the human experience.
