A&M/Verve, 1971. Used ... $14.99
A large, ambitious early 70s experiment in "chamber jazz" from pianist/composer Roger Kellaway – a really haunting set with the sweep you'd be much more in store for on a classical or chamber orchestra record, but with an earthbound core, chords and tonal shifts of a piano jazz ... read more CD

A great little record – partly for the piano work of Ed Kelly, but also for some killer sax work by Pharoah Sanders, who's the "friend" listed in the title!

An overlooked gem from west coast vibist Ricky Kelly – a player who only cut a small number of records, but who was kind of an 80s equivalent to some of the hippest Bobby Hutcherson work of the 70s!
