REVIEWS

* * * * *  (five stars) 
"... the finest examples of progressive large ensemble work written and recorded in America in 1975"
- DOWN BEAT

"Performance: 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"
- STEREO REVIEW

"... (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."
- MELODY MAKER
