Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Keith Jarrett (soprano saxophone, piano, organ, tambourine); Dewey Redman (tenor saxophone, cowbell); Sam Brown (guitar); Charlie Haden (bass); Airto Moreira (drums, percussion); Paul Motian (drums).
  • Producer: George Avakian.
  • Reissue producer: Bob Belden.
  • Recorded on April 5, 6 & 27, 1972. Includes liner notes by Keith Jarrett.
  • Digitally remastered by Mark Wilder (Sony Music Studios, New York, New York).
  • This was the first real indication to the world that Keith Jarrett was an ambitious, multi-talented threat to be reckoned with, an explosion of polystylistic music that sprawled over two LPs (now squeezed onto a single CD). Using his classic quartet (Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, Paul Motian) as a base, Jarrett occasionally adds the biting rock-edged electric guitar of Sam Brown and always-intriguing percussionist Airto Moreira, and indulges in some pleasant string and brass arrangements of his own, along with some grinding organ smears and acceptable soprano sax. Jarrett again turns his early rampant eclecticism loose -- from earthy gospel-tinged soul-jazz to the freewheeling atonal avant-garde -- yet this time he does it with an exuberance and expansiveness that puts his previous solo work in the shade. "Common Mama," a spicy Latin workout with brass punctuations, "Take Me Back," driving soul jazz with streaks of electric jazz-rock, and the lengthy, nearly free "Nomads" are the most invigorating tracks. ~ Richard S. Ginell
Professional Reviews
Q (5/92, p.94) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Keith Jarret's reputation as a bandleader was established in 1972 with this double album..."

Alternative Press (7/00, p.99) - 4 out of 5 - "...An overlooked gem....straddling the fence between straight-ahead compositions, free improvisation and electronic jazz-fusion..."
