They keep changing the covers to sell the album again to people that already have it....it’s called double dipping. I always “hit” “all versions of this release” to make sure I don’t already have it.

How can it be " featuring Saverio Tasca" if he plays on 1 of 9 songs? That's called a cameo appearance not "featuring". It's more like he drops in and leaves he's certainly not featured. He's featured leaving the session and getting in an Uber and ... See full review

You may want to ignore the low rating as the one guy who rated this a 1 Star has a total average rating of 2.49 with 39 ratings. So he's either an angry person or a shunned musician as he doesn't seem to like anything.

Hi. No...not in particular...... I’ve noticed if you leave the original shriink wrap on and then you put another outer plastic sleeve (I.e double wrapped) it can warp. But that doesn’t happen all the time and I have found no direct correlation with ... See full review

I would like to know when Paul Bley does not play "Ida Lupino" on any recording? It's like Albert Ayler and "Spirits"- every single recording it's on their..... not good ................................

This is a little goofy similar to Willem Brueker Kollektief’s music. Not as Goofy as Kollektief but a little Goofy (ie. “Boppy”, up and down, mostly uppity- silly). Pass.

Rock sound like drumming and an overflow of Violin work has put my copy up for sale. Some peak moments though when they go into the free realm. Still searching for that 1970s slow, cerebral Gary Burton vibes work that Jason Adasiewicz doesn’t accomplish. ... See full review

The above Time depictions are wrong: Side 2 Song 2 is only 8 minutes 19 seconds NOT 13 minutes 2 seconds. The back of the album says 13:02 but the actual "emblem" on the record itself says 8:19 which it is. Welcome to the world and welcome to being ... See full review

This is Free Jazz at its highest order and by far Burratti’s best album ( I have every one). Palumbo spins mesmerizing circular taunts as Buratti and Liguori concoct a caucus cocktail of underlayment. Choppy and intense not often found in trio formats. ... See full review

I hereby regret to inform everybody that Side 1 is 13:06 long; Side 2 is 12:32 long; Side 3 is 13:38 long; and Side 4 is 13:12 long. So this is really single album. Track lengths are not listed above.

For those of you worried that the French singer would be singing throughout the album and then you won’t understand her (I.e. don’t understand French) not to worry, she only sings on two songs and one of them is short so you should be good their.
