Bright Moments – Return of the Lost Tribe
Delmark DE 507 (1998)

On Return of The Lost Tribe, Kahil El’Zabar has assembled several leading lights from the early days of the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), resulting in an explosive and swinging reunion of the Chicago avant-garde. Their music glows with an authority not duplicated by those who came after; it speaks from their original era, but with a stirring presence eagerly welcomed some 25 years later. Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre makes a long-awaited return with this recording – the first to feature his clarion tone and soul-wrenching improvisations in almost twenty years. Contains all original compositions by members of the group.
