descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This was an important, revealing release when it was first issued in 1991.Now, with both Horace Tapscott and John Carter having passed on, it takes on even more significance with our knowing that they are beyond the vagaries ofman and Fate, and cannot contribute any more to our lives. On The Dark Treethey created music of power and drama, beauty and spirit. It's a shame wehad to wait so long to hear it, and now we should treasure it."-Art Lange

"Pianist Horace Tapscott has long been Los Angeles's great undiscovered legend. A very original stylist capable of playing bop, free jazz or anything in between, Tapscott does not sound like anyone else. Unfortunately he has made few recordings through the years and thus far none with his regular working band of the past decade, but his two Hat Art CDs partly fill the gap. Tapscott was teamed during a stint at Catalina's in Hollywood with clarinetist John Carter, bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Andrew Cyrille. The lengthy renditions they give three of the pianist's compositions (along with trombonist Thurman Green's "One for Lately") allows listeners outside of L.A. a rare opportunity to hear Tapscott stretching out on records."-Scott Yanow, All Music
