JazzTimes - 11/96, p.89"...His piano work, always muscular, is especially lean and almost brittle....it combines with the percussiveness of the harp to form music full of angular shards and spiky energy....A groundbreaking recording in 1970, this one has lost little of its novelty and none of its power."

This stimulating LP has an interesting combination of players. It may be the only recording to include both pianist McCoy Tyner and his successor with the John Coltrane Quartet, Alice Coltrane (who adds atmosphere with her harp). The set also matches the young altoist Gary Bartz with Wayne Shorter (doubling on tenor and soprano), whom he succeeded in Miles Davis' group, and reunites Shorter and bassist Ron Carter, and Tyner and drummer Elvin Jones. The all-star sextet stretches out on lengthy renditions of four of Tyner's modal originals, and there is strong solo space for the leader and the two saxophonists. Wayne Shorter in particular is often quite intense. ~ Scott Yanow
