Miles Davis, trumpet ; Wayne Shorter, soprano saxophone ; Bennie Maupin, bass clarinet (1st-5th and 7th works) ; Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, Larry Young (1st and 3rd works), electric piano ; John McLaughlin, guitar ; Dave Holland, bass/electric bass ; Harvey Brooks, electric bass (1st-3rd and 5th works) ; Lenny White (1st-4th works), Jack DeJohnette, Billy Cobham (7th work), drums ; Don Alias, congas, drums (1st-6th works) ; Jumma Santos (Jim Riley), shaker, congas (1st-6th works) ; Airto Moreira, cuica, percussion (7th work).
As a bass clarinetist, I am partial to Bennie Maupin's eerie tones and moody atmospheric wailings on the bass clarinet, but this is only one piece of the puzzle. This album needs to be listened to start to finish and with the first two tracks clocking in at over 25 minutes each, it is no easy feat but well worth it!
