Great album! Marvelous compositions that were cutting edge for the time but still not full blown avant garde. Some very nice trumpet work too.

This album is a masterclass on being able to balance laid back yet effective cool jazz/bop sounds with out of this world experimental jazz. Some mesmerizing moments on here, but some 'less is more' memorable hooks as well.

What a brilliantly layered record.
