AACM Great Black Music Ensemble

This event is free

As a premier performing group of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, Inc. (AACM), Great Black Music Ensemble features some of Chicago’s most visionary artists of improvisation and creative music.

An intergenerational ensemble ranging in size from three to thirty pieces, Great Black Music Ensemble performs historical repertoire from the great pool of AACM composers, led by Derek Ewart for the month of February. The GBM Ensemble carries on the legacy of Chicago’s South Side creative music that made its place on the music history map by expressing the excitement of new sounds and rhythms, while invigorating the traditions of black music including funk, reggae, bebop, swing, and African and Caribbean styles.
