Together with Elvin Jones, he stretches out a bit more here than the earlier Contemporary stuff. Excellent.

They Say All Music Guide

Guitarist Barney Kessel recorded regularly for the Contemporary label during 1953-1961, one gem after another. In 1969 he returned to Lester Koenig’s label for this lone effort, a quartet set with vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, bassist Chuck Domanico, and drummer Elvin Jones. The music is fairly free, particularly Kessel’s four originals (which include “Blues, Up, Down & All Around” and “Two Note Samba”). Even Paul Simon’s “The Sounds of Silence” and “This Guy’s in Love With You” are turned into reasonably creative jazz by the all-star group. Although none of the musicians was associated exclusively with the avant-garde (Elvin Jones came the closest but never quite embraced free jazz), they show the influence of the explorations of the era, using aspects of the innovations as a logical way to stretch the jazz mainstream. Fascinating music. – Scott Yanow
