"180 Proof Records continues to bring new life to the Strata Inc. catalog with Larry Nozero's 1975 passion project, Time. The last album to be released on Strata Inc., Time is a dreamlike mix of mood, an album full of range, tempo, and feeling; from the impulsive and airy rendition of the jazz standard 'All the Things You Are' to the brooding melancholia of 'Tony,' Nozero's Time is destined to become known among aficionados as a classic of 1970s jazz. Working with his cousin and collaborator Dennis Tini, Time is unlike many albums of the era in that it truly feels like a work fueled by freewheeling expressionism. The pieces are funky, soulful, strange, and soothing all at once. Tini's stand-out contribution to the album is 'Tune for L.N.,' a funk-fueled piece of rhythm-centric jazz. A distinguishing feature of the album is the use of wordless vocalise. The scat work on part two of 'Chronicle of the Murdered House' adds a distinct counterpoint to Nozero's reed work, while the high pitch bebop of 'Baubles, Bangles and Beads' closes out the album with a carefree and buoyant groove. Time has been remastered from the original reel to reel masters, along with the artwork, which has been restored and printed on top heavy stock tip on gatefold jackets. The record is numbered and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Includes extensive liner notes and never seen before photos."
