4 stars Very rare release - in fact first Jaco Pastorius album (with collaborators). Pat Metheny on guitar, very interesting electric piano sound by Paul Bley. Carla's Bley compositions.

Music is mostly improvs or very complex modern avant and free jazz compositions. Sound is very atmospheric, so you can easily hear all instrument's lines. Mostly impressive is electric piano - drums interplays, but bass - soft guitar both are important.

This music is far from any form of fusion, and could attract mostly free jazz lovers. But very complex and competent musicianship worth listening, even if you're not a big lover of such music. Important work for Jaco and Pat Metheny fans - you can hear both of them there playing much more seriously, than you can expect.
