Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. One of those key records that has George Adams and Don Pullen reinventing expectations of jazz for the 80s – both musicians with plenty of ear for the outside, but also coming back home with a well-rounded, deeply-rooted approach that's crucial in taking the American jazz legacy another step forward! Like some of their similar contemporaries, who could also be avant at times, and straight at others – Adams and Pullen have no concern with setting themselves in one camp or another – and not only flesh out the spirit of the record with both of those aspects of their playing, but also have some surprisingly bluesy undercurrents at times.

The group features George Adams on tenor, Don Pullen on piano, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums – and titles include "Decisions", "Triple Over Time", "I Could Really For You", "Message Urgent", and "Trees & Grass & Things".

This one has all the verve that characterized the best of the George Adams-Don Pullen Quartet's albums, without pandering to the commercialism that some of these recordings exuded. There are some tasty extended solos by all the players, and the choice of tunes is impressive, even if sometimes they sound like simple heads. The requisite spiritual, "The Eye Is on the Sparrow," is typically lush and gorgeously sensuous, while the other pieces are all originals by either Pullen or Adams. If some of the energy of the best of the Quartet is occasionally lacking, there is still enough joyous vigor to appeal to enthusiasts of the group. Adams has such an infectious vim in his playing that every time he picks up his horn the notes seem to fly with abandon, and Pullen crunches the keyboard in a way that only he could. When the Quartet was at its best, as it sometimes is here, it was simply unbeatable.
