AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This lesser-known set, released by several Japanese labels including a 1991 CD issue by Denon, features flugelhornist Art Farmer with pianist Masahiko Satoh (doubling on electric piano), bassist Ron Carter, drummer Jack DeJohnette and a 14-piece string section arranged and conducted by Satoh.

Despite its initial release in Japan, the music was actually recorded in New York City. Farmer is in excellent form on the seven modern jazz originals, most of which are given fresh treatments. The arrangements are fine, and Farmer is up to the task of carrying the main load on such songs as “Nica’s Dream,” “Blue In Green,” “Maiden Voyage” and “Naima.” Worth searching for.

01. Nica’s Dream (6:00)

03. Blue Bossa (6:29)
04. Goodbye Pork Pie Hat (5:42)

06. Maiden Voyage (7:11)
07. Naima (7:10)
