Notes

"This is the last album Rahsaan recorded, a classic example of his dedication to BLACK CLASSICAL MUSIC, and another link in his chain of his music. Those of you who have heard him know that he did not use the term "jazz." He always listened to all aspects of music and explored all areas in his recordings, not just his yunes, as is demonstrated on this album."
Doorthaan Kirk (Excerpt from release notes)
