Default Famadou Don Moye

All the Elvin talk in here of late reminded me of an Art Ensemble of Chicago gig I saw in the 80s. Famadou Don Moye is an absolute beast of a player. Dunno much about jazz but I'm guessing Elvin as an influence.

You might enjoy this clip of the band playing with a djembe drum circle:

And this glorious noise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4mTdOn5DzQ.

A unique drummer in a unique band.
