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. The complete unedited sessions can be heard on Lester Bowie's "All the Numbers", a 2 disc set also on Nessa. 50th anniversary reissue of this classic free jazz session!
