Altoist Oliver Lake (tripling on soprano and flute), trumpeter Baikida Carroll, pianist Donald Smith and drummer Pheeroan akLaff engage in fairly free group improvisations during this consistently stimulating set. The themes (five by Lake and one by Carroll) set the moods of the pieces, and the group takes it from there, sometimes going in surprising directions. Worth several listens.
