AllMusic Review by

This out-of-print LP is one of the lesser Oliver Nelson albums. Mostly playing alto (with one number on soprano), Nelson fronts an English group whose roots are in rock. Nelson plays well and there are some good moments (particularly on Jobim's "Meditation") but most of the backup musicians sound quite anonymous and little of significant occurs.
