This is possibly Charles Gayle's weakest recording. Drummer Sunny Murray seems out of place here; the powerful blowing by Gayle on "His Crowning Grace" is offset by Murray's soft drumming and his attempts to play free and in time simultaneously. Kingdom Come marks the recorded debut of Gayle as a pianist (on "Seven Days," "Beset Souls" and "Redeemed"). His piano playing resembles the style of Cecil Taylor, but it is not nearly as dynamic.
