As one of the most-recorded bassists in the ESP-Disk' catalog, Henry Grimes made his debut on ESP with Perry Robinson on clarinet, lending his unique Klezmer approach to the New Music. This adventurous album is motivating and inviting to the listener, and falls in line with the diversity of the ESP-Disk' catalog.

Anyone who listens (sorry critics) will hear the accuracy and range of Henry Grimes' technique and that alone would make his playing remarkable but he possesses another less common attribute. He is incredibly inventive and in his invention and his development of themes he shows exceptional musicality and taste.
There's not a wasted note on this recording; it's all music and all good.
Reading the work of music critics can be amusing (I recall one who described the members of Monk's fabulous band of the mid sixties as "inferior sidemen") but it's unfortunate that they have influence on what gets listened to.
It seems likely that most critics don't hear the bass. Great performances by bass players are rarely mentioned in record liner notes.
I guess it's well known that Henry Grimes is back but let's hope that his musical importance is widely recognized (as it certainly will be eventually) before long.
