University of Chicago Press

Chapter 9 concentrates on Live from the Jazz Showcase, a video recording that captures all the sounds and sights of an Art Ensemble performance. In this concert, the band plays pieces inspired by the African diaspora, from Nigeria, Mali, and Morocco to New Orleans and New York. As the music unfolds, the group members’ onstage movements turn the performance into an immersive intermedia experience. Live from the Jazz Showcase is a ritual, a community celebration, and a captivating sonic and visual narrative about the meaning of Great Black Music.
