"A free-thinking and spiritual session from Italian bassist Marcello Melis -- recorded right at the height of his late 70s powers! The album's a richly collaborative effort... the album also features great vocals from both Sheila Jordan and Jeanne Lee. The tracks are all quite long and collaborative -- and build sound out of space through the careful use of each player -- allowing their voices to rise together in power, then breaking out beautifully with different thematic moments."
