The Art Ensemble of Chicago is an avant-garde jazz group that grew out of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) in the late 1960s. The ensemble integrates many jazz styles and plays many instruments, including "little instruments": bells, bicycle horns, birthday party noisemakers, wind chimes, and various forms of percussion. The musicians wear costumes and face paint while performing.

In 1970, the members of the Art Ensemble of Chicago were living as expatriates in Paris. The group had only recently expanded to its permanent quintet status with the addition of t Don Moye when they were asked by New Wave director Moshé Mizrahi to provide the soundtrack for his movie Les Stances a Sophie. The result was one of the landmark records of the burgeoning avant-garde of the time and, simply put, one of the greatest jazz albums ever.

The Art Ensemble of Chicago still plays, but mortality has caught up with some of its original lineup. Here's the group in its formative period in 1970 in Paris. This session was originally the soundtrack to a wacky French new wave comedy-drama of the same name, and Soul Jazz has simultaneously released a DVD of that 30-year-lost relic, for the delectation of movie aficionados but probably few others. The Art Ensemble accompaniment is mostly a delight - from the explosive free-squabbles hurled into the thumping soul-groove of Theme de Yoyo, to the wriggling improv of the three horns over.
