"At the time, this seemed a belated and hard-to-find follow-up for Beck's 1968-69 albums "Experiments With Pops" and "Gyroscope" (both already reissued by Art of Life). Replacing Tony Oxley with Humair and Jeff Clyne with Mathewson was logical because, when Beck took over from George Gruntz and the bassist filled in for Henri Texier, this was the then-current rhythm-section of European-resident Phil Woods. The division of the music into two LP-side-length suites disguises to some extent the amount of variety within the original material, with 'Side One' (as it was) being credited to Beck and 'Side Two' to all three players. But there's a wide span leading from piano-led tunes, recognisably from the same pen as those on "Gyroscope", to free group improvisations that are exciting but not wild. Anyone captivated by the elusive pianist's recent work, or aware of his contributions to European Jazz over the decades, is likely to relish this more that the latest stuff out of Scandinavia.
