Art Ensemble Of Chicago discography

This is a discography of albums released by Art Ensemble Of Chicago.

The founder members of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago first played together in 1967 when three members of the Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble; Roscoe Mitchell, Lester Bowie and Malachi Favors Maghostut; were joined by Joseph Jarman and Philip Wilson. In 1969 Roscoe Mitchell, Lester Bowie, Malachi Favors Maghostut and Joseph Jarman moved to Paris where they became known as the Art Ensemble Of Chicago. Famoudou Don Moye joined the group in 1970. This line-up continued through to 1993 when Jarman left the group - he rejoined in 2003. Lester Bowie died in 1999 and Malachi Favors Maghostut in 2004. The remaining members with additional musicians have continued to record and perform.
