RE-MASTERED AUDIO and NEW PACKAGING ! This album, originally released in 1978, was re-mastered and repackaged in Digifile cardboard format. It includes the original full-color booklet.


"Shadowgraph and the duos with Ewart are characteristic of the free abstract jazz that emerged out of AACM's explorations in the '60s and early '70s. Listening to them, one is aware how little this music has been assimilated into the mainstream of either jazz or improvisation."
