I heard a track from this album on WFMU and was surprised to find myself enjoying it since I've never really liked jazz before. Well, this record changed that and since then I've started listening to a lot more.
The signature of this album is the sort of 'battle' if you like that goes on between the trumpet and the saxophone. I've listened to it many times, and each time you get deeper and deeper into it.
If you're not sure about giving jazz a go, I think this is a good start because I found stuff like Miles Davis to be a lot to take in for a newcomer like me, whereas this was accessible without being commerical.
