AllMusic Review by

If there is such a thing as a Holy Grail of bebop, this disc is it. While the sound quality may be lacking (Thelonious Monk is virtually inaudible on piano), Christian's guitar experiments are sublime. This disc is indispensable as an essential document in jazz history, and this French import release boasts cleaner sound than most.
