AAM (Eddie Prevost, Keith Rowe, and John Tilbury)

Location: University of Chicago Goodspeed Recital Hall
Admission: free
Since the mid-sixties the AMM have been a major force in improvised music. The AMM are unique amongst the free jazz improvisors in that their music developed out of a philosophical and political ideology which insists upon the collective over the soloist. It is a music that subtly bends , bubbles and seethes. While cogent on the surface, it suggests endless possibilities derived from the ensemble's varying inner dynamics.
