Art Ensemble's Lester Bowie: Rubber-Legged Populist of the Avant-Garde
Don Snowden, LA Weekly, 12 April 1984
THE ART Ensemble of Chicago — Lester Bowie (trumpet), Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell (reeds), Malachi Favors Maghostut (bass) and Famoudou Don Moye (percussion) — perform under the banner, "Great Black Music: Ancient To The Future." The group's roots lie in the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), the mid-'60s Chicago collective that produced most of the leading experimental jazz artists of the last 15 years.
