    Definitely a formative album for me, those many years ago. The lyricism (especially of the heads - see cficarra below) makes so-called 'free jazz' approachable for anyone with their ear open. Once listened to, you cannot help going around with these tunes in your head, a quality of penetrating uniqueness which weds our souls to artists like Monk. Peace - CCW

    Those Coleman/Cherry head arrangements from the early '60s are possibly the most joyful sounds in jazz.

    why must the note they hit after their synchronized runs have to be so out of tune. it drives me insane. such a great chune otherwise.
