* * * * (five stars)
Excellent ... Recording: Excellent ... probably the most ambitious compositions
ever undertaken by anyone from the jazz field and a great deal more satisfying
than the hybrid we have heard from 'third-stream' jazz composers"
(13) leaves one winded and convinced that something has taken place, even
if the critical faculties fail to grasp exactly what. Not for the fainthearted."
