This obscure set features passionate blowing by Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre (heard on tenor, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet and percussion) along with the little-known Longineu Parson on trumpet, flugelhorn, flute, sopranino and recorders, bassist Leonard Jones, and drummer King Mock. The quartet performs five McIntyre originals and one by Parsons, and the emphasis is on intense solos and very free improvising. There is plenty of fire displayed on this spirited set.
