From the same set of performances that the Fillmore album came from. This was on the last night of a 4 day booking, June 21, 1970.
Soloists include: Don Ellis - trumpet and drums Sam Falzone - tenor sax John Klemmer - tenorsax Lonnie Shetter - alto sax Glenn Ferris - trombone Tom Garvin - keyboard Ralph Humphrey, Ron Dunn, Lee Pastore - drums/percussion
Usually, either in 11/4 or 11/2. The subdivision is either 4, 4, 3; 2,3,2,3,3,3,3,3; or 3,2,2,3,2,2,3,3,2.
Lots of unusual stuff justifying the title. This is the only chart I know of where Don writes harmony/melody lines where only some of the players use quarter-tones at a given moment.
Toward the end of the piece many theatrics ensue, often utilizing spatial relationships. The band not only plays from the audience (not unusual for anyone familiar with the band), but also is instructed to do things like stand up/sit down while playing, or spinning clockwise/counter-clockwise while playing. Not surprisingly with all this nuttiness going on, things get a bit uncoordinated here and there!
