Art Ensemble of Chicago

Message to Our Folks


** Deluxe 180gr. Black vinyl edition. Comes in a deluxe matte laminate gatefold sleeve. Original 1969 BYG album facsimile-edition. Mastered to vinyl from BYG tapes by Nick Robbins. Exclusive liner notes by author John Masouri ** 'A Jackson in Your House' is the first of the Art Ensemble of Chicago’s renowned trio of albums for BYG's Actuel series. This album is The Art Ensemble’s most celebrated release and finds the American avant-garde jazz collective at their most sensational, mocking and startling original best in a session from June 1969, at Studio Saravah. Recorded in Paris during the aftermath of widespread anti-government protests and student riots, it demonstrates what can happen when four highly intuitive and accomplished musicians, fired by Black Nationalism and dreams of liberation and with an array of diverse instruments at their disposal, allow their inspiration free rein. “The tracks on ‘A Jackson in Your House’ challenge us to view music in a different light - as a source of enlightenment, rather than mere entertainment, and also wonderment born of togetherness, courage, beauty and surprise, mixed with terrifying honesty”. - John Masouri
