Long out of print, this is an absolute masterwork from Azar Lawrence (ts). Expansive, forward-leaning, richly textured, and powerfully knotty, this spiritual-tinged outing features heavyweights Julian Priester (tb), Woody Shaw (t), Ray Straughter and Hadley Caliman (f), Arthur Blythe (as), Joe Bonner (p), Clint Houston and John Heard (b), Billy Hart (d), Leon “Ndugu” Chancler, Mtume, Guillerme Franco, and Kenneth Nash (perc), Woody Murray (v), and the inimitable Jean Carn (voc). Essential.
