An excellent compilation of long modal and spacey jazz tunes. Harmless have made a great effort to not just include predictable stuff, every thing on here really works. However, one tune seems an odd choice, David Axelrod's "A Divine Image". I love this tune, but I would not put it on a compilation of spacey jazz, that belongs on a obscuro comp, or something more along those lines. My high point on here is Miles Davis' "Konda", I'd never heard this tune before and I can't believe I've survived this long without it.
