Format: Audio CD
I saw them life in Reykjavik in the early 80's and I knew nothing about them then and the show was a great experience, this was different to say the least, the guys dressed in african costumes with painted faces (except Lester Bowie who looked like a doctor) and the stage full of interesting instruments, it was grand fun.
Full Force is in my opinion the best album from the group (Urban Bushmen is also great) the playing is full of passion and the compositions are higly interesting, original and just pure fun.
One of the things that I really like is, apart from the traditional Jazz instruments like drumset, bass, sax and trompet they play all kinds of handdrums,percussion, bells and whistles, it's a kind of music that appeals to the emotion, intellect and the funny bone (another great guy who does that is of course Frank Zappa).
Highly recommended.

This is one of the Art Ensemble's most accessible albums, with some downright mainstream sounding pieces. However, they do not compromise their vision on this album, and the album is uniformly excellent. Any fan of Charles Mingus needs to hear "Charlie M". Superb album, a highlight of recorded jazz history.

This is a phenomenal album. It brings back the live shows The Art Ensemble of Chicago did at the Edmonton Jazz Festival around 1980.
The music is highly experimental, tonally diverse and completely non-commmercial. The recording quality is excellent with wide frequency response, transparent imaging and wide dynamic range indicative of all ECM recordings. I would highly recommend this album to anyone who understands and embraces modern avant-garde Jazz.
