Album Review

A consummate jazz and session guitarist in the 1950s and '60s, Howard Roberts was a bandleader on quite a few of his own sessions as well, including two very odd albums from Impulse! Records, 1971's Antelope Freeway and 1975's Equinox Express Elevator, both of which are included in their entirety here. This was Roberts on a psychedelic highway, merging everything into a Firesign Theatre-like montage of street noise, acoustic improvisations, stoner jokes, intermittent vocals, and electric guitar workouts that simply defies categorization. Antelope Freeway and Equinox Express Elevator are easily two of the strangest albums Impulse! ever released, and pairing them like this on a single disc is both genius and insane — listening to both of these in one sitting might seriously upset a few apple carts in the mind.
