4.0 out of 5 stars NOT ONE OF HIS BEST, NOT JACKIE'S FAULT THOUGH..., 21 Dec. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: On Steo Beyond (Audio CD)
Now this was the period that saw McLean ditch the post bop style and try something a little different, a little more modal and on the whole the albums work, though it pales against 'freedom now' for one simple reason, Tony Williams drumming. I know he is rated highly but i've lost count of the albums he has well, let's be honest messed up by his drumming style. Everything seems to revolve around the ride cymbal and there is no sense of keeping time. It might have worked with Miles (as in 'miles smiles') but here it deters from the experimental lines McLean is playing until the each track sounds like a disjointed mess with everyone trying to find a common rhythm to improvise over. McLean is as usual on devasting form and manages to rise to the occasion but against Williams stop-start rhythms its often a losing battle. Shame.

I think you are quite simply wrong about this. It is an excellent session enhanced by Williams. This and Destination Out are timeless masterpieces.
