Stanley Cowell is joined by the likes of Ed Blackwell and Marion Brown, among others, for this album of jazz-infused pop music with strong African roots.

"Around the time of this recording, Stanley Cowell had achieved a degree of prominence as the pianist for the advanced bop quartet Music Inc., which he co-led with trumpeter Charles Tolliver, as well as for unusual projects like his Piano Choir. With "Regeneration" he chose another path, essentially trying to produce a jazz-infused pop album with strong African roots, perhaps owing a little bit to Stevie Wonder. He assembled an extremely strong cast of musicians for the venture, including Marion Brown, Billy Higgins, and Ed Blackwell, as well as several African string and percussion masters and, by and large, succeeded conceptually if not commercially... "Regeneration" is an interesting album which... provides a snapshot of some of the cross-fertilization in genres occurring at the time." - Brian Olewnick
