Reorded live at the Umeå Jazz Festival, Sweden, 24-26 October 1975.

A pretty darn nice session, recorded live at the Umea Jazz Festival in Sweden in 1975. Tyler's group here is a quartet, with Ronnie Boykins, Steve Reid, and Melvin Smith – and the group is working in the mode of modal rhythm with free out soloing that seemed to be a slight New York sub-genre at the time, informed by harmelodic experiments, but imbued with a freer sense of soloing.
