Not much measures up to this!

"This album is one in a series made for CTI in the early to mid 70's, also including "Moon Germs", "Song of the Wind", "Canned Funk", and Penny Arcade", and featuring people like Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Joe Beck, Stanley Clarke... If you ever get your hands on one of these albums, don't hesitate. This music has a stunning drive, incredible soli (these guys will probably never forget these studio sessions), and is also very melodic. A must take along to that desert island!"
Outstanding "Outback" - magical !!!

"I followed Joe Farrell's work from the early days, when he played with John McLaughlin and Chick Corea. This is the album which was recorded after his amazing "Moon Germs", and this "Outback" is his Masterpiece. There is no other album like this anywhere. Highly rythmic, flowing, uplifting, magical.

Joe Farrell, Chick Corea, Buster Williams, Elvin Jones and Airto Moreira - WHAT A QUINTET !!!

Tracks ----

Outback - a wonderful, rythmic trip into the outback of Africa. Joe's outstanding, soaring flute floats above extraordinary work by Chick Corea, Elvin Jones and especially Buster Williams on bass. One of my favourite tunes of all time.

Sound Down - a more traditional 60s/70s jazz piece with some Coltrane-ish but controlled work by Joe.

Bleeding Orchid - another mind-blowing excursion into "outback imagery" - fabulous!

November 68th - a hard driving, virtuoso performance by the quintet, with a drum solo by Elvin Jones.

All-in-all, if you have a chance to get this album, DON'T HESITATE !!!"
Classic Gem

"This is one of the few CTI releases that is a must have. Farrell was a wonderful multi-instrumentalist with serious chops on tenor, soprano and flute. This beautiful set features Chick Corea, Buster Williams and Elvin Jones as band mates. A little bit dated in overall sound but a very satisfying date."
