This 1967 recording by the avant-garde saxophonist -- his second for ESP-Disk' -- features Charles Tyler on alto sax with accompaniment from David Baker (cello), Brent McKesson (bass) and Kent Brinkley (bass). The album starts out with “Cha-Lacy's Out East” which revisits a theme from his first album as leader, (Charles Tyler Ensemble). The proceedings are heady free-form avant-jazz, reaching into cosmic realms with its string-heavy backing providing soaring atmospheres. Tyler cut legendary records as a sideman to Albert Ayler (Bells, Spirits Rejoice), but as a leader, proves to be one of the most advanced, challenging, and exploratory players of the late '60s avant-garde. Newly remastered with original artwork & liner notes by Clifford Allen.
