A magnificent heated session in New York by six jazz giants.

This was the first free jazz album I've purchased, and my enthusiasm for this album upon my first listening in a whisky bar (thanks to Shinichi for your fantastic suggestion) made myself grab the brilliant session album out. Avantgarde free jazz with enjoying great whisky ... but their impression was too strong and too splendid for me to remember the taste of whisky actually. What a passion around the sextet ... the brass section featuring John TCHICAI (alto saxophone), Don CHERRY (trumpet), Roswell RUDD (trombone), and Albert AYLER (tenor saxophone) is battling, chasing with each other. Along with incredible sound power created by every brass instrument, upon bombastic soundgarden brilliant sparks are thrown off here and there. And yes, their massive identities should be strictly supported by the two synchronizers - aka the rhythm section Gary PEACOCK (bass) and Sonny MURRAY (drums) ... their rhythm basis is improvised and at the same time intriguing and impressive. It's no strange if any of them go ahead or strike directly. Every giant is exactly a giant, without any suspicion.

Listening to this album has notified me that I sincerely love avantgarde jazz or avantgarde rock.
