From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars I am in the minority of all reviewers because of several aspects: This is a free improvisational music that completely kills any compositional quality and structure of tracks. The second main aspect is the saxophone that most of the time defeats guitar with its intensity. The third track fares better with piano joining to support the saxophone supremacy. We also have a nice drum solo by a jazz legend Roy Haynes. On a positive note, both saxophone and guitar are very creative when playing solo not sticking to post-bop boundaries. Sonically, you could compare the album to Miles' 69 and 70's output. Recommended to very improvisational fusion fans.
