    Personnel:
  • Chico Freeman - tenor saxophone (#1-3,5,7,9), flute (#6,8), bass clarinet (#4)
  • Wallace Roney - trumpet (#1,2,4,5,7)
  • Clyde Criner - piano (#3,5-9)
  • Cecil McBee - bass
  • Jack DeJohnette - piano (#1), drums (#2-4)
  • Billy Hart - drums (#1,5-8)

This is another excellent effort by Chico Freeman, who is heard on tenor, flute and bass clarinet. The instrumentation varies on each selection during the LP, which also features trumpeter Wallace Roney, pianist Clyde Criner, bassist Cecil McBee, drummer Billy Hart, and Jack DeJohnette on drums and piano. Other than Thelonious Monk's "Jackie-ing" (Monk had recently passed away), the repertoire is comprised of originals by Freeman, McBee and Criner. Even if none of the songs individually caught on, they help set an exploratory yet fairly accessible mood, as Chico Freeman does his best to move the mainstream of jazz forward a bit.
