This 1983 recording, originally issued on Sackville LP, features jazz trumpeter Joe McPhee with the Bill Smith Ensemble.     

” …a stimulating set of avant-garde music. The interplay between these masterful improvisors on group originals and Albert Ayler’s classic ‘Ghosts’ is consistently impressive and worthy of a close investigation by the more open-eared segment of the jazz audience.” — Scott Yanow, Allmusic    

  “Vistation breathes as if it were music that was recorded yesterday. Joe McPhee and the Bill Smith Ensemble play music that has no history assigned to it that is evident in the listening. It is the underground vein of music that came up to visit its public.” (5 stars) –Lyn Horton, Jazz Review
