“This intriguing set combines several strong personalities in performances that are avant-garde, close to free bop and sometimes hinting at Charles Mingus, M-Base and harmolodics.  The quintet performs a nearly 15-minute version of All the Things You Are and three Murray originals, including David -- Mingus.  The somewhat noisy performances are pretty spontaneous and, thanks to Pullen's rhythmic style, a little more accessible than one might expect, despite being quite adventurous.”
