"These sides reflect a lighter, more casual view of George Russell- The music is aggressive but not hostile, neoteric but not neurotic, ultra-jazz yet never anti-jazz. I wish that anybody, everybody, who wants to do something new in modern music could study with George Allan Russell."
- from the original liner notes by Leonard Feather
