This is the beginning.
Back in the summer of 1999 Greg Tate gathered a crew of eight musicians to flesh out an idea he had for a new type of band, to perform a new type of music. Those sessions and the following jams at Shariff Simmon’s throwdowns in the basement of CBGBs led to this recording.
Of the 12 musicians (not including tracks 1 & 6 by Moomtez, a previous Tate inception) on this recording, many are still up in the sugar of the Arkestra Chamber today.
