The Art Ensemble of Chicago – Theme De Yoyo

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


A fine fusion of Funk and Avant-garde Jazz, featuring the two saxes of Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell combined with Lester Bowie’s trumpet, Don Moye on Drums with Malachi Favors on Bass. The only female in the band is the legendary Fontella Bass  on Vocals & Piano.
Check how the drummer and bassist lay the Funk foundation from the very opening as the Horns build and lift the tune to the Sky!
Jazz with total Freedom!. Recorded in Boulogne July 22, 1970.
