* Original 1979 vinyl edition of the album. Few copies available. Sealed copies * Drummer Andrew Cyrille and alto saxophonist Jimmy Lyons developed an impressive chemistry during their years with Cecil Taylor. Cyrille's array of percussion instruments and mastery of multiple styles, from hard bop to Afro-Latin, enabled him to play rippling rhythms or light, tinkling lines, attack, or lay back. Lyons' alto solos were alternately driving and soft, sometimes searing in their intensity, sometimes more laid-back and introspective. Those seeking a standard trio or straight jazz date are advised to look elsewhere; there was nothing conventional or predictable about this one. 

Cat. number: BSR 0030
Year: 1979
