Oh, no shade being cast on Cohn, far from it. Especially from this time (1974), the guy was soaring. I just think it's funny how you take two guys who you would not think of in the same breath, give them a tenor and the facts of Lester Young, and they come out using the horn the same way, maybe with more or less different ideas/projections. Same thing only different. Life is beautifully funny like that sometimes, especially when the expressive and the mechanical intersect.

Apart from that, this is a pretty good record by Teo, more or less unknown best as I can tell, Uneven as hell, as most of his self-released Teo Records things were, but good.
