This is a rather unusual chamber jazz album that finds bassist Cecil McBee
interacting with violinist John Blake
, cellist David Eyges
, cornetist Olu Dara
, and drummer Billy Hart
. Variety is gained by McBee
switching to piano on "Truth -- A Path to Peace," while "Into a Fantasy" is a classical-oriented string trio with violin, cello, and bass and "Blues on the Bottom" is a more conventional blues. The advanced music and the blending of the unusual colors works quite well.
