The Magic of Ju-Ju is an album by Archie Shepp released on Impulse! Records in May 1968. The album contains tracks recorded by Shepp, Martin Banks, Mike Zwerin, Reggie Workman, Norman Connors, Frank Charles, Dennis Charles, Ed Blackwell and Beaver Harris in April 1967.

On this 1967 Impulse release, tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp unleashed his 18-minute tour de force "The Magic of Ju-Ju," combining free jazz tenor with steady frenetic African drumming. Shepp's emotional and fiery tenor takes off immediately, gradually morphing with the five percussionists - Beaver Harris, Norman Connor, Ed Blackwell, Frank Charles, and Dennis Charles - who perform on instruments including rhythm logs and talking drums.

Shepp never loses the initial energy, moving forward like a man possessed as the drumming simultaneously builds into a fury. Upon the final three minutes, the trumpets of Martin Banks and Michael Zwerin make an abrupt brief appearance, apparently to ground the piece to a halt.

The title piece, The Magic of Ju-Ju is a tour-de-force. Eighteen plus minutes of Shepp roaring on tenor on top of a drum hurricane. Beaver Harris and Norman Conners play drums, Ed Blackwell plays rhythm logs, Frank Charles plays talking drums, Dennis Charles is on percussion and Reggie Workman is on bass. Shepp's huge tone is out front. The energy level starts off frenetic and stays there. This is great stuff but is definitely not background music. You either listen to music like this or you get hurt.

The Magic of Ju-Ju defined Shepp's sound for the next few years: freeform avant-garde saxophone lines coupled with rhythms and cultural concepts from Africa. Shepp was invited to perform in Algiers for the 1969 Pan-African Cultural Festival of the Organization for African Unity, along with Dave Burrell, Sunny Murray, and Clifford Thornton. This ensemble then recorded several sessions in Paris at the BYG Actuel studios. Shepp continued to experiment into the new decade, at various times including harmonica players and spoken word poets in his ensembles. In 2002, Shepp appeared on the Red Hot Organization's tribute album to Fela Kuti, Red Hot and Riot. Shepp appeared on a track entitled "No Agreement" alongside Res, Tony Allen, Ray Lema, Baaba Maal, and Positive Black Soul. In 2004 Archie Shepp founded his own record label, Archieball, together with Monette Berthomier.
