Long considered a classic of avant jazz, this hard-to-find, monumental performance has finally been given the deluxe treatment it deserves. Although this music was conceived during a tumultuous time and place (1969, Los Angeles), a time of black empowerment, a time of revolutionary zeal and social injustice, the music transcends any cultural influences or limitations. It is more about creative interaction between musicians steeped in a culture of enlightenment, a music that was meant to carry a higher message and bring greater spiritual and cultural awareness to the listener. And it does just that.
