Favors, Malachi Maghostut
▪ 2005

      American jazz bassist (b. Aug. 22, 1927, Lexington, Miss.—d. Jan. 30, 2004, Chicago, Ill.), was devoted to a rich, pure, unamplified sound as he played swinging accompaniments and dense, extended solos; he painted his face in ceremonial designs and wore traditional costumes from Africa when he performed. For 38 years, from 1966, he played in the Art Ensemble (later, Art Ensemble of Chicago), a flamboyant, innovative free-jazz group that joined blues, bop, abstraction, African and classical music, and colourful percussion; his earthy bass lines were the unifying element in the Art Ensemble's explorations; he also recorded with such free-jazz masters as Muhal Richard Abrams, Archie Shepp, and the Ritual Trio and led his own groups.
