Album Remarks & Appraisals:
In the eighties, venerable music producer Stefan Winter jumped at the opportunity to offer a young Steve Coleman a record deal. Soon after, he began working with Greg Osby, Cassandra Wilson, Robin Eubanks, Gary Thomas, Geri Allen, and many others - musicians who would later come to be known as the "M-Base Collective." Although these works were recorded mainly in the eighties, as a listener one can hardly believe it! Features early works by Steve Coleman, Greg Osby, Geri Allen, and more.
