This album is the standard spiritually intense new jazz one learns to expect from the Strata-East, soaked in some Eastern influences but always with its ear to the street. Musicians took their roles as leaders and spokesmen very seriously back at the time. One of the hardest to find records on the label as well as one of the best it is a darkly-crafted session of pure beauty that lives up to what Strata-East meant as a label. Shamek Farrah’s legendary composition "First Impressions" continues today to fascinate listeners around the world many years after its inception.
