New Re-issue of Soul Jazz records' release of The Art Ensemble of Chicago's soundtrack to 'Les Stances A Sophie'.

With this release Soul Jazz Records are reissuing a long lost album by The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, one of the most important and radical Jazz groups to come out of the USA. 'Les Stances A Sophie' was recorded in Paris in 1970 and features the regular Art Ensemble members (Lester Bowie, Joseph Jarman, Roscoe Mitchell and Malachi Flavors) alongside the newly recruited drummer Don Moye and Fontella Bass on vocals and piano. 'Les Stances A Sophie' was originally released on EMI France and later in the US on Nessa Records.Both editions have been out of print for many years and Soul Jazz Records are reissuing the album to coincide with the release of the newly available film.

Essential !
