Message to Our Folks concludes with a survey of the Art Ensemble’s final decades, from the 1980s into the twenty-first century. In the late 1980s, the musicians began touring and recording with collaborators from around the world, sharing their musical and social practices with a global network of performers. As their collaborators would discover, the Art Ensemble’s social model was so strong that it could keep the group together even in the most trying circumstances. Joseph Jarman took a lengthy sabbatical, Lester Bowie passed away in 1999, and Malachi Favors died in 2004. But Roscoe Mitchell and Don Moye soldiered on, bringing Jarman back into the fold and delivering their resonant message to all with ears to hear.
