5 stars My interest to Keith Tippett came from two different sides: first, as to musician,who take a part in some great prog-albums recordings, and second, as for musician and husband of great singer of the era Julie Driscoll.

It's a first album of KTB for me. And I am not disappointed, not at all...

Great music, to be honest -more avant-jazz, than prog-rock. Absolutely perfect technigue, fantastic Elton Dean sax-solos. Yes, some moments are somewhere in the field of avant-jazz, but always on the border, never-too much.

It gives to the album that magic feeling - you are listening some great musiscians on their improvisation session, music is brave, complex, but you all the time catching, what happens. It is small miracle - as dancing on the edge of the blade. You are near missing it, but never really missing.

To be honest, sax/trombon solos are most impressive parts on this album for me ( not Tippet's piano). But all in all it's rare mix of something that lays between avant-jazz and prog, and the mix is fantasticaly successful!

For sure, don't expect something in KC style there! Generaly, this album is for modern-jazz lovers, or who that, who likes jazzy part in jazz-rock music of that time ( Soft Machine or some Gong albums).
