I was the one who originally posted. The sound is beyond horrible. A tough listen.

I'm really enjoying it. I'm no way near the Harper afficionado that some of our fellow board members are but to my ears this is a storming set, good some quality and production values. Can't believe anyone who likes Harper would be disappointed.

Some may baulk at the short playing time 20:16 and 15:29. The notes mention that the set was completed by a 20' 'Priestess' so I do wonder why they went for the shorter 'Croquet Ballet' for side 2.

I'm glad they did; it's a particularly strong performance. I have the impression that you can hear that the quintet is more familiar with this piece, which they recorded a few days earlier in the studio, than with "Cry Of Hunger". 

Anyway, an excellent release from Sam.

I only discovered it recently.  Pretty good stuff -- if you're into 80s-ish Brazilian fusion.

In Brazil, the same music was issued as High Life (not in Slagle's name) on Elektra Musician. 

If you'd like to give it a listen...

The Brazilian cover is less garish, no?

A wonderful album, I love those Freddie Redd compositions. 

Above all, "The Thespian". That beautiful rubato playing of the theme with Chambers bowing the bass , and that that break and the them played fast. 

And Jackie McLean and Tina Brooks are wonderful. 

Freddie Redd´s style is very interesting. He got his own style, I like it.

How are you finding that?  I sampled a few tracks and wasn't too convinced by some of the collaborations

Edit to add: decided to listen to it and can see that I fell for the danger of random sampling. Still not sure about the Camille track at all

I ordered the LP from amazon (US). The CD was not in stock when I ordered but does show up as in stock now (though with a suspiciously delayed delivery date). There are 8 tracks. Two are solo kora. Of the collaborations, the ones with Sona Jobarteh and Vincent Segal/Patrick Messina are excellent. I don't know who Camille is, but I liked that track and the one with Salif Keita. The track with Oxmo Puccino I did not care for. The track with Piers Faccini was okay. This opinion is based on listening to the LP twice in a row last night.

Thanks.  Giving it another spin and I agree with you on the most successful collaborations.  Salif Keita could sing a shopping list and I'd enjoy it!

EDIT: 
Just finished listening to Tate's version of "Isfahan," the first cut on Side 2.  I had to get up and move the tonearm back to the beginning to listen again.  Wow.  Tate doesn't erase memories of Johnny Hodges' way with this tune -- no one can! -- but Tate can take a proud spot right up there beside Hodges on Olympus when it comes to this song.  That is no mean feat.
