High quality reissue! Quality sound taken from the original master tapes, 180 gram vinyl, heavy cardboard sleeve and original artwork. A wonderful, wonderful, wonderful "new thing" jazz session from Blue Note - and proof that the avant garde in the 60s didn't necessarily have to resort to blowing their heads off to make fantastic music! Trombonist Grachan Moncur III organized the session - but like other key Blue Note dates of this type, including work from Tony Williams and Jackie McLean, the album's a very evenly-weighted date that features equal contributions from all members involved! the lineup's a dream - and features Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Tony Williams on drums - and the set's very much in the vein of Williams' Life Time album for Blue Note - with lots of dark, moody, and extremely complex compositions - and beautifully restrained modern solos. Moncur wrote all the tracks, and titles include "The Twins", "Nomadic", "Gnostic", and "Thandiwa".
