4.0 out of 5 stars straight ahead from the Art Ensemble of Chicago April 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For those who have actually heard the Art Ensemble of Chicago before, you will find that this is more conservative in comparison to their other output. Most of the compositions use the theme-solo format typical of straight ahead jazz, and they don't really get into the high energy free playing that they have on earlier work such as Horn Web. It is not dissonant at all. In spite of this, the solo improvisations are very well constructed, and Don Moye as always is a fantastic drummer. This is the sound of well played jazz. Who needs the Caribbean sound?

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional but still Euphonous July 7, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album only knowing that the Art ensemble was an avant-garde group from the free jazz period. Now I am a comitted fan. They retain their ability to float in and out of time and through dissonance and consonance effortlessly while adding incredibly solid semi-carribean grooves.
I like it because of the attention given equally to melody and also improvisation (with Lester Bowie and Roscoe Mitchell showing supreme command of their instruments) while leaving room for the unwavering support provided by the rhythm section.
If you are a traditional jazz fan looking to begin acquiring a taste for the avant-garde, this cd along with some of Coltrane's later works (Ascension) and Miles Davis' (...) Brew are great. Also, if you are an established Art Ensemble fan from their earlier work, this cd demonstrates more of the group's melodic prowess. Lastly, the grooves on Grape Escape, Mama Wants You, Strawberry Mango, and Lotta Colada along with the looping, floating feel of Odwalla Theme are great for casual listeners.

This is a fine jazz albumn (thus the four stars) but I'm oddly disappointed. I guess I was expecting a much heavier Carribean sound. The players are all top notch but most tracks sound like what you would expect to hear in any American club. There is one song, Strawberry Mango that has a satisfying reggae sound and sounds like they are having a lot of fun playing. The rest of the cd is good but sounds more Chicago than Carribean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to hear new music from the greatest band ever August 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. The band plays some terrific music as a quartet. I miss Joseph Jarman, but I really like the tunes and the rhythms on this album. Check it out. Fun and beautiful.
