The Art Ensemble of Chicago: Lugano

10 Dec

The Art Ensemble of Chicago is decidedly not for everyone — it’s avant-garde to the nth degree. If you like it, you’re ready for Cecil Taylor. But going to one of their concerts was like going to a Halloween party — the performers dressed up in costumes or in character. Unfortunately, Lester Bowie (husband of Fontella Bass of Rescue Me fame) died in 1999; fortunately, they recorded a whole lot of albums before.
