Julian Priester (tb), Woody Shaw (trumpet), Azar Lawrence (ss) (tenor sax), Hadley Caliman (fl), Arthur Blythe (alto sax), Joe Bonner (piano), John Heard or Woody Murray, Clint Houston (bass), Billy Hart (drum), Leon Chancler, Mtume or Kenneth Nash (percusion), Jean Carn (voc)
How can you go wrong with a line up like that ?! Fantastic session on Prestige from 1974 which features the furious jazz dance cut "Forces of Nature ".
