"A continually intriguing record, this outing by drummer Beaver Harris is most notable for featuring two underrated and often overlooked but talented advanced improvisers: trombonist Grachan Moncur III and Ken McIntyre (heard on alto, bassoon and flute). With pianist Rahn Burton and bassist Cameron Brown completing the quintet, the group plays five complex group originals that clearly inspire the talented players. Recommended to followers of post-bop jazz." (source: S. Yanow, AllMusic.com)
"With avant-garde groups, Mr. Harris's drumming was both swirling and muscular, waves of rhythm that gave propulsion and texture to the incantations of saxophonists like Albert Ayler and Archie Shepp. But Mr. Harris was also steeped in more traditional forms of jazz swing and in African and Caribbean rhythms. His own group, the 360-Degree Music Experience, included a steel drummer along with saxophonists and the rhythm section, and moved freely between traditional and experimental jazz on its albums "From Ragtime to No Time" and "A Well Kept Secret."
