Sad to hear of the death of Joseph Jarman from Art Ensemble of Chicago last week. This great obituary comes from Richard Williams of thebluemoment.com, a great AW friendly blog. I saw AEoC at Fairfield Halls in Croydon some time in the late 80s? with the great Lester Bowie but Joseph was the performer of the night. Sometimes he was too pharping for me but at other times he produced beautiful soulful sounds. Time for an AEoC playlist I think!
