The great Helen Merrill's most challenging, outer worldly record ever, featuring loose, free highly textured arrangements by Masahiko Sato and Peacock, recorded just 4 months before the epochal "Samadhi' by the trio...
This also features a touching version of Ellington's 'In a sentimental mood' which is so obviously Gary Peacock's very moving tribute to Jimmy Blanton... beautiful oh so beautiful, painfully so..
Only reissued on Cd in Japan and out of print to the best of my knowledge ..
This rip is taken from the early 70's Storyville LP ..
Helen Merrill is as far as i know still recording...and well worth supporting !
