This album is a classic of contemporary big band jazz, and not at all as difficult to listen to as the previous, also laudatory review, made it sound. Muhal is an unacknowledged giant of large ensemble music, and every composition here offers something great. My personal favorites include the beautiful ballad "Oldfotalk," and the rainforest of synth and woodwinds on "Aura of Thought-Things." The one I may love most of all is the burning "Finditnow," which starts with a baritone sax-drum duet, then ratchets up the intensity even further when the great Fred Hopkins enters on bass during the subsequent tenor solo. A frenetic thicket of horns resolves with a solo cello tour de force. The incredible band includes Cecil Bridgewater, Jack Walrath, Marty Ehrlich, John Purcell, Charles Davis, Deidre Murray, Warren Smith, Hopkins, and Andrew Cyrille. DO NOT miss this album, big band lovers, and check all preconceptions at the door.

The music on this recording is not easy listening. Nor is the listener encouraged to believe that it was ever meant to be. This communication searches, explores but never arrives. This is not to say that this is a mass of dissonant, rhythmic trash. No, these vibrations populates a cottage of high level consciousness. It is difficult to paint a clear picture of this music. Labels are ill suited to describe its content. It simply is empyreal music.
One can appreciate this work ,and not be well versed in the language of jazz. It is very symphonic in many ways. Unexpected keyboard timbres are used effectively. Your attention is demanded gently as the sublities of expression may be losted. Mr. Abrams is a musician's musician. This set of orginals offers its listener the chance to soar. Your transport are the mediums of rhythm, harmony, melody and mental imagery.
This set is dedicated to two of the Mr. Abrahms friends. If these two people were as beautiful, mysterious and accessible (as the music) then they were definitely worth knowing.
