Editor's info:
Critically acclaimed woodwindist Mwata Bowden's One Foot In One Foot Out CD features a cross generational ensemble that includes fellow Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicans (AACM) cohorts reedist Ari Brown, drummer Avreeayl Ra, bassist Harrison Bankhead, trumpeter Leon Q. Allen and spoken word artist Khari B. Bowden can be heard on dozens of recordings, from rhythm and blues artists in the 70s to Edward Wilkerson s 8 Bold Souls to Tatsu Aoki s Miyumi Ensemble, but this is his first recording of his own compositions. Not surprisingly, those compositions range from reminiscences of the days when 47th Street was swinging and the Bronzeville neighborhood where Bowden grew up was a rich tapestry of African American culture, to a graphic notation composition drawn in the shape of a four leaf clover, connecting to Bowden s interest in organic shapes and structure. Discopoet Khari B, who could often be seen writing spontaneous poems during AACM s Great Black Music Ensemble performances, penned Praising Mama Ann, a moving tribute to his band mate and mentor vocalist Ann E. Ward, among other spoken word collaborations on One Foot In, One Foot Out.

Mwata Bowden was born in Memphis but has his roots in Chicago's jazz history. After training under legendary band director Walter Dyett at DuSable High School, touring with the rhythm-and-blues band the Chi-lites, and developing a reputation as a riveting multi-instrumentalist, Bowden established a jazz scene at the University of Chicago where he is currently the Director of Jazz Ensembles.

As a second generation member and former Chair of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), he helped evolve the concept of collective improvisation through its signature band, the Great Black Music Ensemble. His more than 20-year partnership with Tatsu Aoki's Miyumi Project helped create an amalgam of American jazz with Japanese Taiko, and as a member of Edward Wilkerson’s Eight Bold Souls, Bowden has performed at jazz and blues festivals throughout Chicago and around the world.

He is a long time educator who understands how learning and applying the skills of improvisation can provide life-long benefits for youth—from CPS elementary and high school students to the AACM School to the many Jazz X-Tet students and alumni at the University of Chicago as well as workshops he has presented to students worldwide. In 2013, he received the Jazz Journalists Association's Jazz Hero award for his advocacy for and cultivation of a strong and vibrant jazz community in Chicago and in the world.
