Synopsis

Album Description
Ricky Ford means business on this pulsating album, originally released in 1991. His first passionate, bursting solo draws its inspirational roots all the way from Hawkins to Coltrane via Al Sears and Roland Kirk. On this and the other six Ford originals in this set, Ricky organized the tune structures to allow for the insertion of free improvised passages for himself and the other players. Throughout the date Ricky's fellow musicians - Jaki Byard (piano), Milt Hinton (bass), Ben Riley (drums) - are able to indulge in classic interplay, to be free yet to function as a whole.
