Press Quotes

"Although over 40 years have passed since the release of this album for ESP-Disk in 1966, Chicago-born pianist / composer Burton Greene still considers it to be one of his best recordings. All compositions are written by Greene and feature Marion Brown on alto sax, Henry Grimes on bass, Dave Grant and Tom Price on percussion and Frank Smith on tenor sax. Greene made his way to New York City in 1962 just as the free jazz movement was beginning to gain momentum. The following year he and bassist Alan Silva formed the Free Form Improvisation Ensemble, often considered the first spontaneous composition group. Greene has remained committed to music over the past four decades, most recently exploring his Eastern European Jewish roots with various klezmer-jazz projects.." - Forced Exposure
