3 stars This album is not jazz-rock of Metheny early albums, or one of many his impressionistic polished and comfortable listening. This album, even is real free-jazz with some elements of post-bop, free-funk, etc.

Even if labeled by Pat Metheny as leader, in reality this album is Ornette Coleman album and Jack DeJohnette album. Two great jazz musicians create atmosphere, similar to Coleman's Prime Time's one. Sax is really interesting there and drumming is outstanding!

Second drummer, participating on this album, is Ornette's son, avant-jazz drummer Denardo. Pat Metheny is on the second plan there with backing guitar and synth sounds.

One rare really interesting (not comfortable or pleasant) album from Metheny. Regular guitarist fans, collecting his often cheesy releases, could be shocked by this release. Everyone, interested in experimental music, will find some really attractive moments there.

My rating is 3+
