This recording, taped in August of 1967, was the first release on the Nessa label. It was also the first recorded documentation of a quartet soon to be known as the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Two years later Lester Bowie, Roscoe Mitchell, Joseph Jarman and Malachi Favors ventured to Paris as a first step towards conquering the world. This 24 bit remaster, from the original half inch 4 track session tapes, restores the program as originally released for the first time on compact disc.

  • Roscoe Mitchell (alto & soprano sax, flute, clarinet)
  • Malachi Favors (bass, kazoo)
  • Joseph Jarman (alto & soprano sax, clarinet, bassoon, bells)

Recorded at Chicago, August 11 & 25, 1967.
