Personnel: Ran Blake, Jaki Byard (piano).
At the time of this recording, both Jaki Byard and Ran Blake were music professors at the New England Conservatory. Blake's Third Stream background provides an interesting foil for the eclectic Byard. The wild introduction to "On Green Dolphin Street" signals a departure from the common paths, with dissonance playing a key role. They co-composed several pieces during the date, including the ear-stretching blues "Chromatics." This is a very lively session worth repeated hearings. ~ Ken Dryden
