5.0 out of 5 stars listeners may never tire of hearing this 7 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
An all time classic album from Max and his quintet of Charles Tolliver(tp)Gary Bartz(as)Stanley Cowell(p) and Jymie Merritt(b).
Roach's sound can be a bit hit or miss but this offering really nails it,every track is worthy with Stanley Cowells 'Effi' and 'Equipoise' being particular standouts (you can perhaps hear where Bill Lee and Bobby Watson got their inspirations for 'John Coltrane' and 'Time will tell').
Tolliver and Bartz make a formidable front line and Andy Bey delivers some spiritual musings on the title track.
Brilliant Jazz music

5.0 out of 5 stars The first jazz record I bought 23 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now one of my favorites from Max 17 Dec 2005
By Speedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a joyous cd with most tracks composed by the great Stanley Cowell and in the company of Gary Bartz (of fusion Miles era fame) and Charles tolliver (Played with Andrew Hill & Horace Silver, a.o.). This reminds me a bit of the almost simplistic style of composition found in Horace Tapscott work, or the 'Illumination' album by Elvin Jones (where credit is due to the Prince Lasha and Sonny Simmons team). Excellent and recommended to lovers of hard bop and melodic-yet-challenging jazz.
