"Recorded on the same day as the Odyssey of Iska, this loose session (Wayne Shorter's final one for the Blue Note label) is quite unusual. Although Shorter sticks to his customary tenor and soprano, pianist Chick Corea plays marimba, drums, and percussion; bassist Ron Carter mostly performs on cello; electric guitarist John McLaughlin sticks to the 12-string guitar, and bassist Dave Holland also plays acoustic guitar, with drummer Michelin Prell rounding out the group.
"Not released until 1974, the music is influenced by early fusion and has its interesting moments ... The group performs Milton Nascimento's 'Vera Cruz' and four of Shorter's originals, of which 'Montezuma' is the best-known." — AllMusic.com
