Roscoe Mitchell: Old/Quartet Sessions. That was about to change. Mitchell led a quartet that also included trumpeter Lester Bowie, bassist Malachi Favors, and drummer Phillip Wilson. By the time the group made its first record, saxophonist Joseph Jarman had replaced Wilson, and shortly thereafter the group named itself The Art Ensemble of Chicago.

Roscoe Mitchell Quartet is an album by American jazz saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell recorded in 1975 and released on the Canadian Sackville label. The album documents a two nights performance promoted by saxophonist and journalist Bill Smith, co-founder of Sackville Records, at A Space, an artist-run gallery in downtown Toronto.

Roscoe Mitchell - B flat soprano sax, alto sax, tenor sax Muhal Richard Abrams - piano George Lewis - trombone Spencer Barefield - guitar. Recorded in concert at A Space, Toronto on the 4th and 5th of October 1975. The band is Roscoe Mitchell (reeds); George Lewis, a 23-year-old in his debut recording (trombone); Muhal Richard Abrams (piano) and Spencer Barefield (guitar). In 1975, Mitchell’s primary affiliation was the Art Ensemble of Chicago. The quartet at A Space has more in common with the European and American classical avant-garde.

Old/Quartet is the most recent offering and presents the very first iteration of the Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble across two discs and seven tracks. Here, Philip Wilson (1941-1992) is heard on drums; the lack of paying gigs sent him on the road with Paul Butterfield later that year and it wasn’t until 1970 that the AEC found a stable drummer in Famoudou Don Moye. Like other groups derived from Chicago’s Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, the Art Ensemble was known for its broad, spacious improvisations and use of ‘little instruments’ – kazoos, whistles, bells, and tin cans.
