Jazz critic Scott Yanow wrote: “McLaughlin’s raw sound was starting to take shape by this time and his impeccable chops are on full display. So too are those of the underrated vibraphonist Karl Berger and, of course, soprano saxophonist Surman.
The foundation is held loosely in place by bassist Dave Holland and drummer Stu Martin.
It’s a challenging but interesting listen, especially given McLaughlin’s later success and popularity.”Robert Christgau stated “Recorded in New York in 1969, when McLaughlin’s studio appearances were amazing everyone from Jimi to Buddy to Miles, this prefigures Mahavishnu’s fusion at an earlier, jazzier stage. Pretty intense. The rock guy (drummer Martin) sounds a lot more original than the jazz guys (keyboard player Berger and–especially–saxophonist Surman), but only the justifiably ubiquitous Holland (on bass) can keep up with McLaughlin. And believe me, even if in historical fact it’s McLaughlin who’s trying to keep up, that’s how it sounds.”
