OK if you have landed here I guess that either you were attracted by a/ the price of the MP3, 2/ by the involvement of half the Nordic Jazz Mafia or c/ by an arcane knowledge of Jazz composers. In any event, this attrociously covered album is a little gem. Bridging the gap between say Gil Evans' orchestrated adventures with Miles to the Manfred led ECM phase of European development. Less abrasive or intimidating than you might imagine, there are even bits that you can hum (possibly still requires a couple of listens for that though.) Given that this was recorded in 1967 - available 68 this should have been more widely known. Anyway take the plunge good investment and at least you can impress your cool friends with you knowledge of Jazz history (remember to have a pipe ready to bolster your intellectual prowess or give you something to suck on should the ruse fails to work.)
I commend this MP3 to the House.
