The creativity, integrity and imagination of a kid who first picks up the guitar and jams with friends who just picked up a horn. Does this mean that the music sounds like a few kids playing? Yes and No. Yes as it is "Free" jazz. There is nothing there that the normal person would enjoy, as you might not find the groovy 4/4 beats your looking for. The music is sophisticated and it stands out with the great production. Many might find this to be talentless, as if anyone could pick up their instruments and start making noises, but if you go into the musicians other works, they are all well established virtuosos. I gave this rating a five only because this is one of the first LPs of free jazz to have the guitar stand out as a main composing/improvising instrument.

I'm not a Methany fan but I do love free jazz. Methany seems to fit right in with the other free jazz monsters on this recording. Looking for something different? I suggest this.
