Trumpeter Leo Smith's 1979 album, two tracks in a quintet with Pheeroan Ak Laffondrums and Bobby Naughton on vibes, and one track of Smith with 3 harpists.
Released in: USA
"The dry and often esoteric trumpeter Leo Smith is featured with his quintet (consisting of Dwight Andrews on tenor, clarinet and flute, vibraphonist Bobby Naughton, bassist Wes Brown and drummer Pheeroan akLaff) on the 19-minute "Images" and the colorful "Spirit Catcher." "The Burning of Stones" (dedicated to Anthony Braxton) has Smith's trumpet joined by three harpists for some unusual music. Throughout the LP the performances are unpredictable, and it's frequently difficult to know where the arrangement ends and the improvising begins. This is thought-provoking music that grows in interest with each listen."-Scott Yanow, All Music GuideAlso available as a vinyl LP.
