written on the label.

”With the exception of a beautiful ballad version of Larry Willis’s “Poor Eric,” the music on this record (which is also available in Mosaic’s four-disk Jackie McLean box set) is hard-charging, intense and fairly free. Altoist McLean was at the peak of his powers during this period and, inspired by the versatile rhythm section (pianist Larry Willis, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Clifford Jarvis), he plays explorative versions of his own “Eco,” Willis’s “Christel’s Time” and Charles Tolliver’s “Right Now”; an alternate version of the latter is added on for the reissue. This record offers listeners a particularly strong example of Jackie McLean’s unique inside/outside music of the 1960s.”
