Joseph Jarman was born Sept. 14, 1937. Jazz musician, composer and Shinshu Buddhist priest, he is perhaps best known as one of the first members of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians and the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
We were doing performance art as far back as 1965, just not calling it that.
