Press Quotes

"Alto saxophonist Sonny Simmons was one of the most talented (if unfortunately lesser known) free jazz musicians of the 1960s. Born in Oakland, CA, Simmons began playing alto sax as a teenager in the early '50s and spent his early years collaborating with Prince Lasha and Charles Mingus. Except for a brief stint in New York in the early '60s, where he recorded with Elvin Jones and Eric Dolphy, Simmons spent most of his life in California where he met and married trumpet player Barbara Donald (featured on this album). His Music From the Spheres, recorded for ESP-Disk in 1966, with Michael Cohen on piano, Juney Booth on bass and Jim Zitro on drums, represents one of the highlights of his career. After almost completely disappearing from the jazz scene for nearly 20 years, Simmons made an amazing comeback in the early '90s with his brilliant Ancient Ritual.." - Forced Exposure
