    Overshadowed by his peers from the '60s, this solo album convincingly made the case for John Tchicai as a great saxophonist and flutist. Unfortunately, few heard it! Rediscover this spellbinding recital, full of sinuous repetitions, memorable melodies that emerge and recede, and trance-like riffs. It contains an Indian inflected flute piece reminiscent of Don Cherry and a terrific duo with Albert Mangelsdorff. Throughout, Tchicai erases the line between composition and improv - in real time.
