AllMusic Review by

Recorded at the same sessions that resulted in Musics, this LP (which has not yet been reissued on CD) is actually more exploratory. Tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman interacts with both Mark Helias and Charlie Haden on "Piece for Tenor and Two Basses," swings semi-conventionally on "Half Nelson" (which adds pianist Fred Simmons and drummer Eddie Moore), and engages in some sonic explorations on "Adesso Lo Sai." Strangest of all is "Come Earth," which finds Redman switching to harmonica, the two bassists bowing wildly and Moore playing a musical saw. That number rambles on colorfully but without much direction for ten minutes.
