(5 out of 5 stars)

"As the sixties came to an end, Blue Note Records was recording
astonishingly avant garde music. Upcoming players were often pushing the envelope on the label. Chick and Dave Holland were well into their Miles electric tenure when this acoustic masterpiece was recorded; those who bought it expecting "Silent Way" were either amazed or appalled, but were surprised either way. (Those who bought Tony Williams' Blue Notes, expecting fusion, were equally surprised.)
Thirty years later, their exploration is as fresh and astonishing as it was then. Corea's piano touch, as great as any post-Bill-Evans' player's, is displayed in an immaculate recording. The interplay and exploration have rarely been equalled, both in the spontaneous improv, and in complex harmonic explorations of what were soon to become standards ("Nefertiti" and "Connotation", one of the bonus tracks).

There's an apocryphal story crediting avant garde reed player
Vinny Golia, while he was still a visual artist, with the cover art, too."
