Listening to the past; playing to the future

In 1965, a group of musicians congregated on Chicago’s South Side to create experimental music that transcended styles, naming themselves the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). Fifty years later, three artists shaped by this still-active collective—Nicole Mitchell, Tomeka Reid, and Mike Reed—joined forces to create Artifacts, an album reinterpreting tunes from AACM’s storied past. It’s a celebratory nod to jazz history, yet the trio is committed to more than reflection: as a group, they also perform original music that speaks to current times. Renowned leaders and composers in their respective fields, Mitchell, Reid, and Reed—reuniting for the Festival—are known for pushing their individual art forms and instrumentations to discover new realms and possibilities.
