"In the stream of its apparent freedom, this trio acts with constraints, imposed not by restriction, but by genius." - Lyn Horton, All About Jazz
"This record marks a hand full of milestones for the alto saxophonist. It's his first and only release from the ESP-Disk' label; his first recording with his new trio featuring Izenzon and Moffett; his last release before a two year hiatus from recording and live performances; and it's an early example of Coleman's theory of harmolidics featuring a string ensemble."
