anthony davis james newton quartet - hidden voices

As I creep up into old age I find I don't dislike flute as much as I once did. Those Jethro Tull records really messed up my head when I was a kid and I'm just getting over it.
 Good thing because James Newton plays a fair amount of flute on this lp (it's what he does! ed.) but it was my rampant appreciation  of Davis' piano that made scoop this up the minute I found it. I really dig that the only other horn is a trombone. I kinda dig these odd combos, when they work.
This one does, but what would you expect from India Navigation, one of THE great labels?

side one:  a) forever charles
                 b) hocket in the pocket
                 c) past lives

side two:   a) crystal texts set 1, pre a-reflexion
                  b) sudden death

anthony davis - piano
james newton - flute
rick rozie - bass
pheeroan ak laff - drums
george lewis - trombone (guest)
