AACM Saxophonist Fred Anderson Dead at 81 years of age

One of the leaders of Chicago's 45-year-old avant-garde jazz artist collective, the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, Fred Anderson, died last month. This article gives a good rundown of his life. Here are a few of his albums that I own and like. I am sure there are others, such as the highly touted "The Missing Link," which are equally interesting:

On the Run: Live at the Velvet Lounge (delmark)
Back Together Again: Hamid Drake and Fred Anderson (thrill jockey)
The Milwaukee Tapes (atavistic)
Timeless: Live at the Velvet Lounge (delmark)
