2014 reissue of the Count's 1971 album arranged & conducted by Oliver Nelson originally released on Bob Thiele's Flying Dutchman label. Given tunes written by Oliver Nelson, Albert Ayler, Pharoah Sanders and Gabor Szabo, with arrangements by Nelson, he proved himself capable of being as modern as any player. There are many great moments on this album, including his abstract solo on Sanders' 'Japan' and his duel with flautist Hubert Laws on 'Gypsy Queen'.
