I stumbled on this CD when they were playing it at my local music shop and immediately picked it up for for four & a quarter.  Allmusic says, “A classic album, and one of the finest of drummer Max Roach‘s very productive career. The illustrious sidemen (trumpeter Booker Little; trombonist Julian PriesterEric Dolphy on alto, bass clarinet, and flute; tenorman Clifford Jordan; pianist Mal Waldron, and bassist Art Davis, in addition to some guest percussionists) all have opportunities to make strong contributions. Dolphy‘s pleading alto solo on “Mendacity” is particularly memorable. Abbey Lincoln has two emotional and very effective vocals, but it is the overall sound of the ensembles and the political nature of the music that make this set (along with Roach‘s Freedom Now Suite) quite unique in jazz history.
