The date tells it: this mythic record was taped in a single studio session! Those were the days, for sure, where music mattered more than technology – the (also) mythic '70s! This track is a good example of what was then possible in jazz. A pianist who plays mostly soprano sax, rock-influenced drums and electric guitar, an electric bass played in a unique way by a former upright bass player, a vibist who had recently shown interest in folk music … all of these more or less Miles Davis-influenced musicians playing a beautifully melodic theme that nobody would confuse with the budding fusion of the time. If that's not creativity and originality!
