Great live work from French horn player Vincent Chancey – one of the few jazz musicians we've ever known to touch that instrument, and maybe one of the best! French horn was used famously by Julius Watkins in a series of 50s modern jazz recordings – but there, the instrument was often used to "class" things up a bit – whereas Chancey's work of the 80s is much looser, freer, and more experimental – really using the range of sounds from the instrument in ways that maybe nobody else has ever done – especially in the freely improvised space of a recording like this! Bassist Wilber Morris is a great match for the deep tones of Vincent's horn – and Warren Smith's work on drums is nicely modest, often allowing for the deepest interplay between other other two instruments
