CONTAINS NEW SPECIALLY PREPARED LINER NOTES BY PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ’s WRITER BRIAN MORTON AND BY PARIS' PRESTIGIOUS JAZZ MAGAZINE
“What remains is one of the great records of modern jazz, music from a wide range of voices, marked by subtle polyphony, paired instrumental voices, a deliberate restraint of a kind not often encountered in jazz, which prizes energy. In fact, a shared masterpiece that has enjoyed a greater than usual mix of reactions. Like all iconic records, it needs to be heard, not talked about.” - PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ
“The enchanted chemistry of these late 1940’s sessions has lost none of its unalterable magic.” - JAZZ MAGAZINE
