(2-CD set) Trumpeter/composer Bradford has done much of his best known work with Ornette Coleman, John Carter, John Stevens, Trevor Watts and his own Mo'tet. These recordings are the result of his first encounter with drummer John Stevens and saxophonist Trevor Watts in 1971. In addition to these two, this edition of the SME included Julie Tippetts (Driscoll) on voice and guitar, Bob Norden on trombone and Ron Herman on bass. The instrumentation moves from full sextet to trio in the varied program. Part of this marathon session was issued on Freedom in the '70s. Though John Stevens died in 1994, Bobby Bradford continues producing great music in the Los Angeles area and on world tours.
