As opposed to the genres listed above, I'd say this album is more sound-scape free jazz with lots of energy. This is the same place Eric Dolphy was coming from on 'Out There'. It succeeds very well and is a great album.

Chico Hamilton, having led one of the most significant bands of the West Coast cool jazz era in the '50s and having headed a mid-'60s group that featured Charles Lloyd and Gabor Szabo, was in a state of transition at the time of this 1969 album. This intriguing if erratic set features up-and-comers in altoist Steve Potts (who would later be a longtime member of Steve Lacy's group) and guitarist Eric Gale, along with the obscure tenor-saxophonist Russ Andrews, but this particular band would not last long. Most unusual is that Ray Nance, formerly with Duke Ellington for 20 years,.
Foreststorn "Chico" Hamilton, (September 20, 1921 – November 25, 2013) was an American jazz drummer and bandleader. Hamilton then struck out as a bandleader, first with a quintet featuring the cello as a lead instrument, an unusual choice for a jazz band in the 1950s, and subsequently leading a number of groups over the years that performed cool jazz, post bop and jazz fusion.
