4 stars Very weird "association" of experimental fusion, free-jazz and maybe "king size" symphonic approaching performed by "very big band", about 55 members. But principally sounds splendidly! This double set record is maybe one of the most important works of famous British jazz-pianist Keith Tippett. And producer of this "spectacle" was Robert Fripp. Very many of these performing members on this item are (were) well-known musicians in British Canterbuty fusion scene (from bands as Soft Machine, Nucleus, King Crimson, The Keith Tippett Group). The music (four vinyl-side-long parts) is mostly improvised, instruments' solo parts (saxes, guitars etc.) are often very expressive and burning (the weakest places are in my oppinion some soulish vocal parts)! I think this music is not "very hard to listen". Almost four stars!
