Never before released radio recordings at WKCR in 1979 of NY trumpeter Arthur Williams, a member of the loft scene, in a quintet with Toshinori Kondo on trumpet, Peter Kuhn on sax, Denis Charles on drums and William Parker on bass, a great example of probing free jazz from that period. The two trumpeters are split in the recording, with Williams on the right and Kondo is on the left, making it easy to recognize each player's work. Arthur Williams is not as well known as his band members, but at the time he was a peer of Jemeel Moondoc, Frank Lowe, Milford Graves, Cecil Taylor and Peter Kuhn; in fact, the lineup of this album is the same as Kuhn's 1978 Livin' Right album. Kudos to NoBusiness for bringing this essential material to new ears.
