”Of all the artists who recorded for the Black Jazz label, keyboardist and composer Doug Carn was the most prolific, releasing four albums for the imprint. Aside from McCoy Tyner's 'Contemplation,' John Coltrane's 'Naima,' and René McLean's 'Jihad,' Doug Carn himself takes the composing reins on this masterful 1973 release, which further integrates Jean Carn's ethereal yet soulful vocals into the his impressive stylistic vision. And this time the band includes such heavyweights as trumpeter Olu Dara, bassist Walter Booker, and drummer Ira Williams. All of Carn's albums for Black Jazz are classics; this one - featuring a new remastering by Mike Milchner of Sonic Vision and liner notes by author Pat Thomas with excerpts from a freewheeling interview recently conducted with Doug Carn himself - might just be first among equals.” - Real Gone Music
