LIft every voice - Andrew Hill

Andrew + Quintet + 9 voices. Fun, isn't it? You bet.
As usual, Andrew had problem finding listeners for this disc back when it reached the streets in 1969, so it had two releases, with different musicians and approach; In this edition we find a kind of compilation of these previous releases.
In a more funky style, featuring Lee Morgan, Ron Carter, Ben Riley and Woody Shaw, this uplifting album may seem easy, but it's rather complex and substantial. The voices are pretty aggressive and unique, the Tenor Sax is surprisingly wild and, well, I always tend to get lost with adjectives... so make up your own.
