After jazz record dealers questioned Tony Dark’s ability to pay for a copy of saxophonist Archie Shepp’s 1972 release Attica Blues , the producer struck back by naming his band after the album. Consisting of fellow beatsmith Tony Nwachukwu and vocalist Roba, the London-based trio found a home for their melodramatic and brooding sound on the Mo’ Wax label. 1997’s eponymously titled debut album is a moving collection of songs that showcase Roba’s royal vocals as she trills through tracks about self-doubt, lost love, and even world history. This goes down over expansive production that fuses jazz samples with elaborate strings to create a dramatic and haunting listening experience that also nods to the two producers’ African heritage. “It doesn’t cost anything to be yourself / Wealth has no value when you’re dealing with yourself,” sings Roba on the melancholic “. Expense” as she helps turn Attica Blues into a trip-hop album with true soul.

Richard is shown in 1974 speaking in NYC to the International Radio Forum; then on the job in 1983 and in a 1991 snapshot.
