this entry says :
multi-reedman marty krystal is well known in "the business" for his work with aretha franklin, peter erskine and bassist buell neidlinger. this recording took place almost on the spur of the moment with trumpeter hugh schick, bassist yasushi yoneki and drummer takumi iino. besides the group's hard driving renditions of monk tunes and their sensitive rendition of "prelude to a kiss, of special note are marty's arrangements of three native american papago songs. a must listen!

an intense tenor saxophonist influenced a bit by the sound of ben webster but open to adventurous improvisations, marty krystall has appeared in several of buell neidlinger's groups through the years. he has worked as a studio musician in los angeles since the late '70s, helped run the k2b2 label and has recorded with neidlinger in krystall klear and the buells, buellgrass (later renamed string jazz), the group thelonious and a recent tribute to herbie nichols.
