AllMusic Review by

The fourth of five LPs recorded during a ten-day period in 1976 continues the documentation of the wide variety of adventurous music that could be heard in New York loft clubs during the era. Many major names appear on this particular album. Baritonist Hamiett Bluiett (doubling on clarinet) leads a two-guitar two-drums septet, altoist Julius Hemphill interacts with cellist Abdul Wadud in a quintet and tenor great David Murray and altoists Jimmy Lyons (with bassoonist Karen Borca) and Oliver Lake all lead quartets.
