The Alabama born saxophonist/clarinetist had a short lived career as a member of the sixties avant-garde, but achieved legendary status for the company he kept in his Cooper Square loft where the likes of Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Don Cherry, Archie Shepp, and Pharoah Sanders often congregated. This debut date is best known for the presence of players, who like Watts, were to become renowned for the rareness of their recorded output, including Sonny Sharrock, Byard Lancaster, Clifford Thornton, Karl Berger and Henry Grimes.

Press Quotes

"This is a powerful artistic statement by a man one wishes had recorded more often...this is a peek into a chapter of American music that is still criminally underappreciated." - Rob Ferrier, AllMusic
