Recorded in Greenfield, Massachusettes, on November 20th, 1999, this classic recording of the Untempered Ensemble is a sprawling 2-CD set that “represents a virtuosic synthesis of composition and improvisation, and of conventional and unconventional timbres,” writes Michael A. Parker for All About Jazz. He continues, “I’m willing to claim that this is one of the most important documents of Jazz in the past ten years.”
The album features Bill Cole (sona, hojok, piri, nagaswarm, shenai, Tibetan trumpet, digeridoo and Ghanaian flute), Cooper-Moore (percussion, self-made instruments), Warren Smith (percussion, glockenspiel), Joe Daley (euphonium, tuba), William Parker (acoustic bass), Sam Furnace (tenor sax), and Atticus Cole (percussion)
