"From a 1968 CBS 'Real Jazz' series LP comes Turn Circle -- the recording debut of the quartet led by guitarist and composer Ray Russell. This is arguably Ray's finest jazz album, mixing compositions by such notable figures as Wayne Shorter ('Footprints') and Charles Lloyd ('Sombrero Sam') with Ray Russell originals. The best known of these is the suite in three movements 'A Day in the Working Life of a Slave of Lower Egypt.' This remarkable work blends modal writing and free collective improvisation to stunning effect while showcasing the individual talents of quartet members Roy Fry (piano), Ron Mathewson (double-bass) and Alan Rushton (drums)."
