AllMusic Review by

A rare date from a distinctive trumpeter whose approach, clarity of tone, and directness set him apart in the '60s. The set included a fine three-part song dedicated to Cecil Taylor. The band mixed avant-garde types like bassist Alan Silva with mainstream figures like drummer Freddie Waits. It also had an unusual lineup, with two, sometimes three trumpeters and a saxophonist, bassist, and drummer. Dixon occasionally played piano.
