AllMusic Review by

As strong as she sounds in groups, pianist Marilyn Crispell is consistently heard at her best when playing unaccompanied solos. She explores five originals (including the two part "Archaic Visions") on this fairly rare Leo album, ranging from tunes titled "Love" and "Sadness" to "Song for Abdullah (Ibrahim)." The music is quite intense, if occasionally lyrical, with Crispell displaying both the influence of Cecil Taylor and her own musical personality.
