RA*2ILLBX for me Tim Berne's music is like Jack Daniels with coke. you know its good for you but why mix the two? good personal taste or another reason to say fuck it why not. I like where Tim is going from the "5 year plan" to know it will progress and get weirdest along the way and hopefully stick a ballad or a tango for me, Tim.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This is certainly the most unusual David Sanborn recording to date. Avant-gardist Tim Berne (heard here on alto and baritone) and the popular R&B star Sanborn (mostly leaving his trademark alto behind to play sopranino) share a great respect for altoist Julius Hemphill and the St. Louis free jazz movement. Along with guitarist Marc Ducret, cellist Hank Roberts and drummer Joey Baron, they perform seven often-emotional Hemphill pieces plus Berne's "The Maze." Sanborn is to be congratulated for successfully stretching himself although this is very much Berne's date.
