If this wasn't part of a series for which I have most of the volumes, I'm not sure that I would be keeping this. I think the highly experimental phase of American music during the mid-20th century is an important one, but more for its message of breaking free from constrictions rather than the actual music that was developed during this time. Of course, the three pieces here are challenging, and represent aspects of American life in ways that had only begun in the last couple of decades from that point. Either you can totally dig what music sounds like when the 12-tone is taken to its greatest reach, or you find the lack of focus "unmusical". I'm sort of in the middle. Still, this is _interesting_ music and when I do listen to this album, it's purely for interest.
