DBMITW: Art Ensemble of Chicago

I've got several things brewing-- including, but not limited to the rest of the series on playing in 5/4-- but they're all taking their sweet time getting finished, so in the mean time, here's some Art Ensemble of Chicago for you. I've always loved Famadou (that's FAmadoo) Don Moye's playing: deeply swinging, with a beautiful, clean and big sound. And he's the world's coolest free jazz drummer-- as someone else said about Kenny Clarke, he's not going to bust his butt "for nobody."

Here AEOC plays Dreaming of the Master, from the record Nice Guys:

The rest of this concert is after the break:
