I just wanted to say that The AACM stand for: Association for the Advancement of Creative (and not colored) Musicians. Anyway this records is for all those who love freejazz and particularly the late Fred Hopkins on bass.

I'm not sure why Mr. Weidenbaum/Amazon would not check his/their facts before putting finger to keyboard. My father, Steve McCall, was a founding member of the AACM and would not have laughed at this distortion as I did.

Other than the major gaff as to what the C in AACM stands for!..........

I often see these reviews mention something along the lines of..."If you like the music of Henry Threadgill in recent times, you will be disappointed in this recording."
It seems the listeners and their reviews come with an expectation much of the time.
Elvin Jones said it best when he said..."You must take music on it's terms.....not on your terms,"
Air is not Henry Threadgill of Zooid or Circus, Circus or any other of his groups,
I for one am glad it is not and hope every recording Mr.Threadgill does is very different than any of the others he has recorded in the past. It seems to me that is what makes this kind of music making so interesting.
I like the searching and open improvisation Live Air offers. It's about the journey not the destination.

Format: Audio CD
"Live Air" is made up of two shows. The first two songs are from a loft performance in 1976, and the second two songs are from a live show in 1977. There is some good stuff on this disc, particularily in the shorter songs. Unfortunately, the opener ("Eulogy For Charles Clarke") is too abstract for me, and gets the album off on the wrong foot. I recommend this for fans of the freer style of jazz -- people coming at this disc from Henry Threadgill's more recent tautly coiled music may be disappointed.
