O’s Notes: Four men, Roscoe Mitchell (reeds), Malachi Favors Maghostut (b, perc), Don Moye (d, bongos, congas) and Joseph Jarman (flutes, reeds) make up AEC. They are experienced musicians that feed off of each other’s energy. Their music is spontaneous and creative: seven new compositions that are a cross of fusion and free jazz. They leave enough space for the listener to absorb and appreciate the vibe without being overwhelmed.
