Since Paul Bley's death i, I've been finding more records that I love with his voice ringing through. I've loved this record for years, but I'm listening to it again to dig deeper. I've actually been into Ornette since I started playing jazz about 15 years ago—his unique voice always made me keep listening, even though my initial reaction wasn't positive. This album is ridiculous—the interaction, the listening, the space, the energy. It has to be ranked amongst one of my favorites with these musicians, and because it's one of Ornette's first live recordings, its even more special. Bley's solos alone force me to step outside of what I consider normal space and time. I mean, if you haven't heard that trio start from "I Remember Harlem," I recommend starting there. But seriously, the whole album offers some serious listening adventures.
