Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy is a group led by trumpeter Lester Bowie, who is also the leader of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, a group synonymous with free/experimental jazz. This is an album released in 1985. The album opens with A1, the old jazz cover that gives the album its title, and then the entire album is a return to the roots of African and black music, with a great love for New Orleans jazz in every corner of the album. And yet it is wonderful that it is not just nostalgia, but is sublimated into new jazz.B1: Coming Back, Jamaica
