Landmark material – one of Grachan Moncur's two classic albums for Blue Note, and a session that ranks as one of the best examples of the "new thing" moment in 60s jazz! Grachan's leading a sextet here that includes a number of players that he cut his teeth with in Jackie McLean's great mid 60's group, including McLean himself, Bobby Hutcherson, and a young Tony Williams. Lee Morgan joins in on trumpet – playing with a surprisingly modern tone for the time – and the group works their way through 4 stunning Moncur compositions – "Air Raid", "Evolution", "The Coaster", and "Monk In Wonderland". It's hard to describe the power of these recordings – but thankfully, we don't have to, as one listen to the album will blow you away!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
