"Hasaan was an absolutely unbelievable piano player and composer. If you like Monk, if you know of Herbie Nichols, Hasaan was like Monk plus Nichols to the tenth power. He was a legend who made only one record!!! One of the great tragedies in record history. This is really a Hasaan record, his music and leadership. Max Roach lent his name to it to help it get out in the market. I met Roach in the 70's and asked him about Hasaan...he was immediately overwhelmed, and told me that Hasaan was in poor health. This is a unique recording in every sense."
