From the Decider DC:

Douglas and Bonilla replicated the Coleman-Cherry partnership (the two were allegedly telepathic) throughout, tag teaming as they tried to outrun the trumpeter’s compositions.

Rhythm-section partners Rojas and Waits had a blast following each other and the front-liners: Roja blowing mad arpeggios and Waits piercing cymbals as though with a spear. Chancey, however, was the wild card. He kept one fist jammed into his French horn, creating a mute that was sometimes more like a strangle, so that his timbre and tone were the most daring of the bunch. But on his few solos he was also the most lyrical, and his accompaniment on the closing “Twilight Of The Dogs” was one of the night’s standout moments.
