The octet is perfect for David Murray as an outlet for his writing, a showcase for his compositions, and an inspiring vehicle for his tenor and bass clarinet solos. For the third octet album (all are highly recommended), Murray meets up with quite a talented group of individuals: altoist Henry Threadgill, trumpeter Bobby Bradford, cornetist Butch Morris, trombonist Craig Harris, pianist Curtis Clark, bassist Wilber Morris, and drummer Steve McCall.

David Murray is a wonderful musician, as a player, as a composer, and most prominently here, as a bandleader. I like his work with the octet, it's probably the best of the many formats under which Murray chooses to work. David has found some eager and sympathetic players to work in this unit; but he kinda hogs the spotlight. That's not an immense disappointment, as Murray solos brilliantly on tenor and bass clarinet.
