AllMusic Review by

Thompson's terrific ode to a unique time and place in African-American history is filled with exciting musical ideas while also remaining accessible. Of particular note is the jumping "Some Freebop for Monk," with its criss-crossed melodic lines over a steady bass pulse, and the "Mystery of Jazz" suite.
