"In the early 1970s pianist and composer Adegoke Steve Colson and vocalist Iqua Colson were both members of The Association for Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), the radical home of jazz music in Chicago, and spiritual home of the Art Ensemble of Chicago. In 1980, Colson released Triumph!, recorded in Chicago with a stellar line-up of Art Ensemble and AACM members in the group including Joseph Jarman and Doug Ewart. The album includes the track Lateen which appears on Soul Jazz Records' album 'New Thing!'. (alongside Sun Ra, Art Ensemble, Alice Coltrane). Steve and Iqua Colson left Chicago in 1982 to live and work in New York. Steve Colson is currently a member of the word-music ensemble Blue Ark, led by the radical poet/critic Amiri Baraka (aka Leroi Jones)." (label info) Limited to 1000 copies.
