Straight free jazz from 1973, pairing L.A. cornetist Bradford with an all-UK band. Mostly fast tempos, mostly in classic head-solos-head format, although some tracks deviate towards the abstract model the British players were already experimenting with (they've all got albums of that stuff on the Emanem label).

Bright, brisk horn work from Bradford, who shares the spotlight with some energetic sax played by Trevor Watts. "Normal"-sounding in an Ornette Coleman way, with loose structure and freedom to stretch solos to arbitrary lengths.

1- Casual mid/fast, slow start
2*- Tumbling jumble, fast
3- Abstract, untethered, slow. Composed part comes at the end
4*- Fast, with early bass/drum soloing. Ends with Bradford solo
5- Repriese of 2 -- still fast, but calmer
6*- Mid/fast, almost swinging. Bass solo opens
