AllMusic Review by

The second of Horace Tapscott's seven solo piano dates for Nimbus is one of the better ones, consisting of a nearly half-hour exploration of his "Struggle X" along with a 9½-minute obscurity ("Many Nights Ago"). Tapscott has always had a strikingly original sound that, despite occasional hints at other pianists, is quite distinctive, falling between advanced hard bop and the avant-garde. Although best-heard in small groups rather than solo, this adventurous set is worth picking up.
