Art Ensemble Goes Micro with Daniel Sadownick and David Fiuczynski

Daniel Sadownick, a conga player and percussionist extraordinaire, and the Planet MicroJam Institute, under the direction of David Fiuczynski, perform microtonal versions of compositions by Sadownick and the Art Ensemble of Chicago.

The Art Ensemble is an avant-garde jazz group that grew out of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians in the late 1960s. The ensemble integrates many jazz styles and percussion instruments, including unusual “little instruments” such as bicycle horns, party noisemakers, and wind chimes.

Sadownick is a versatile percussionist who has toured, performed, and recorded with artists such as Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Steely Dan, Al Green, the Roots, and many others.

Lydia will appear on a couple of songs as a featured vocalist.
