This unusual project matches alto saxophonist Jackie McLean (also heard on flute, percussion, and a little bit of piano) and drummer/percussionist Michael Carvin in a set of duets. The music (all originals) is atmospheric and often haunting, making a lot of use of space. Some sections meander, but the four-part title piece (which depicts slaves crossing the Atlantic Ocean) certainly holds one's interest. This is a unique project in the discography of Jackie McLean, and is well worth a few close listens.
