May 16, 2019 PLAYLIST # 1101

In April of 2015, the very important and highly influential Association For The Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) celebrated its 50th anniversary, and now, one of the seminal bands to emerge from those early days celebrates its own 50th anniversary: The Art Ensemble Of Chicago.  I saw them in concert in Edmonton over 35 years ago and that night remains uppermost in my musical memory banks. Original members Roscoe Mitchell and Famoudou Don Moyé remain today, and the current version of the Art Ensemble has released “We Are On The Edge: A 50th Anniversary Celebration” on Pi Recordings. It’s the feature album this week.
Also new and noteworthy are releases from Jerry Granelli, G.Calvin Weston and his Phoenix Orchestra, the ICP Orchestra from a live set in Albuquerque, pianist William Tatge and his trio, and German pianist Hans Ludemann &his TransEuropeExpress. Plus a whole bunch more of fine music, of course!
