18th Annual Positive Feedback Writers' Choice Award Winner!
Duke shows himself to be a singer with a soulful sound. Shortly before this recording he had shelved his trombone so that he could communicate more directly with the audience, as can be heard in the hymnal, dreamlike title piece.
The guest list of players make for an especially exciting concoction. No less than Duke's playing companion Frank Zappa, under the cryptic pseudonym Obdewl'l X, performs some adventuresome guitar passages on "Love" and "Old Slippers."
The album is worth it if all you listened to was track two 'Love'. Here Duke goes to town on his ARP accompanied by old band mate Zappa's fiery guitar solos. The recording comes with wall-to-wall sound and densely orchestrated textures... Highest recommendation and not to be missed!
