AllMusic Review by

Formal writing for a jazz group: like experiments for other "progressive jazz" ensembles of the late '40s and '50s -- the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra, or the Stan Kenton Orchestra, for example -- this is a piece of its decade, but it's still interesting. Other works on this CD are by other well-known, formalist composers George Rochberg (1918-), Lalo Schifrin (1932-), Richard Wernick (1934-), and Stefan Wolpe.
