Malachi Favors

Born:

Malachi Favors was the mainstay bassist in a remarkable group that combined traditional elements of jazz and blues, West African music, chanting, ritual, abstract sound and silence. The Art Ensemble of Chicago was one of the landmark groups of experimental jazz. But with all its theatricality the rudiments were not slighted. Favors, a concise, direct and eloquent player, formed a boldly swinging rhythm section with the drummer Don Moye. Favors sometimes added Maghostut to his name, which his daughter said was an Egyptian word meaning ''I am the host.'' Favors was born on August 22, 1927, in Lexington, Mississippi, Moved to Chicago and served in the Army during the Korean War, and then, back in Chicago in the late 1950's, he studied with the bassists Wilbur Ware and Israel Crosby, and worked with the pianists Andrew Hill and King Fleming
