The Art Ensemble Of Chicago - A Jackson In Your House (1969)

The second album to be released on BYG Actuel, and also the debut album of The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, under the name they got famous for. The Art Ensemble Of Chicago is a really unique group of people that make free jazz as close to art as possible. When this group toured Europe in 1969, the year this record came out, they used over 500 instruments on their tour. A performance by this collective is as much an aural experience as it is a visual spectacle.

I really like this album, it is definitely not their best, nor is it their most famous, but it shows you how great BYG used to be and how much talent this group of people had together. All multi-instrumentalists and up for the experiment.

get in line
