Pete La Roca took this Jerome Moross composition and infused his musical soul and in my opinion put out the best rendition of this song that was ever done. With the help of Joe Henderson’s atmospheric sax playing, Steve Swallow’s guiding rhythm on the bass, Steve Kuhn’s climatic piano and finally Pete’s brushes softly guiding the piece… you go on a journey.
Chico Hamilton played among some masterful jazz artists and throughout his career starting in the 50s produced countless albums as leader but he regarded this particular line up of Charles Lloyd, Albert Stinson, Gabor Szabo and George Bohannon to be his greatest band.
Not too hard to hear why.
This Charles Lloyd composition is fabulous and also expresses and displays what a great sax player he was.
