The ACE (Afro-Caribbean Experimental) Collective is breaking new territory with its musical amalgamation of the Afro-Caribbean diaspora, the jazz tradition, and free music art-forms. Artists such as Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Dizzy Gillespie used Afro-Caribbean rhythms in their compositions, but their work didn't experiment with the pulses in these rhythms; part of what sets the ACE Collective apart is their expansion and reconfiguration of these pulses. In addition, the Collective includes poetry and storytelling in many of its pieces, and they also bring to light traditional songs from the Afro-Caribbean tradition. Clearly this music goes deep and wide, and the result is a multi-layered, multi-cultural aural banquet.

Jorge Sylvester Ace Collective: Spirit Driven

This is music that invokes forces for the good, played by people  who feel these forces—and it also offers a cautionary tale about what happens to the world when these forces are absent.
     
The ACE (Afro-Caribbean Experimental) Collective is               breaking new territory with its musical amalgamation of the      Afro-Caribbean diaspora, the jazz tradition, and free music       art-forms. Artists such as Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Dizzy Gillespie used Afro-Caribbean rhythms in their             compositions, but their work didn't experiment with the pulses in these rhythms; part of what sets the ACE Collective apart is their expansion and reconfiguration of these pulses. In addition, the Collective includes poetry and storytelling in many of its pieces, and they also bring to light traditional songs from the Afro-Caribbean tradition. Clearly this music goes deep and wide, and the result is a multi-layered, multi-cultural aural  banquet.                                                              
The ACE Collective has brought utmost 

sincerity and musical skill to this               

 recording, and the result is a multi-          

cultural explosion that is not to be 

missed.
