AACM Celebrates 50 Years

AACM Celebrates 50 Years

The Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) is one of the most innovative and respected organizations in jazz, providing decades of support for creative music and musicians. This year the organization turns 50, and there is still a lot of music to look forward to.

Classicalite recently published an article on the beginnings of the organization. Read the full story here.

To help celebrate the anniversary, the Robert D Bielecki Foundation has announced a matching grant of up to $25,000 to help present a series of concerts this fall in New York City, as well as to assist in strengthening the infrastructure and outreach of the organization. For more information, and to make a donation, please visit the Robert D Bielecki Foundation.

Pi recordings is proud to have worked with many AACM artists, including Muhal Richard Abrams, Henry Threadgill, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Wadada Leo Smith, Roscoe Mitchell, Leroy Jenkins, Fred Anderson, Anthony Braxton, and George Lewis.
