This is one of the best and most important avante garde jazz albums ever made, its importance enhanced by the fact that the quintet was formed specifically to come and play in Copenhagen and was disbanded when the musicians returned to New York. The ten tunes on this CD, thanks to 24-bit remastering from the original mastertapes, sound as fresh as when were recorded live at the famous Montemartre jazz club in Copenhagen in 1963. The most advanced number is a fifteen minute tune called The Trio which uses both modal scales and changing meters. The band is led by three of the absolute best of the avante garde musicians of that time. Don Cherry is on cornet, Archie Shepp on tenor sax and John Tchicai on alto sax. The music is heavily inspired by alto player Ornette Coleman and pianist Cecil Taylor and features three Ornette Coleman compositions and two by Thelonious Monk. The brilliant, high-energy performance of the musicians on this CD is an example of improvisational, modern jazz at its absolute best.
