AllMusic Review by

This very intriguing set finds the adventurous jazz violinist Billy Bang leading a quartet that includes tenor-saxophonist Frank Lowe, bassist Sirone and drummer Dennis Charles. The music is often quite melodic (particularly Lowe's relaxed solos) yet is utterly unpredictable. Bang combines a strong technique with a primitive sound and it may take listeners a little while to get used to his tone.
