Charles Bobo Shaw & Human Arts Ensemble – Streets Of St. Louis

out of stock

The Human Arts Ensemble was a 1970s musical collective operating in St. Louis, Missouri. Members explored free jazz and loosely associated themselves with the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) and the Black Artists' Group(BAG) collective. It was formed in 1971 with the idea that performers could perform in the ensemble, without restrictions as to the performer's race. Additionally, public funding had ended for musical associations that were suspected of having connections with radical organizations.

Streets Of St. Louis was recorded live at Studio Rivbea New York on September 6th 1974 and released  by Moers Music in 1978
