Signed boldly by Tyner on the front cover in black marker pen, "To Ed, McCoy Tyner". This is the first pressing of the great pianist's first album for Milestone, voted Record of the Year by the Down Beat critics, "a deservedly successful release, which transformed his career" (Ian Carr in Jazz: The Rough Guide).

The quartet comprises Sonny Fortune (soprano, alto, flute), Calvin Hill (bass and percussion) and Alphonse Mouzon (drums, trumpet, flute). Tyner's "often massive piano sound, complemented by the intensity of Fortune and Mouzon, creates irresistible impetus and fiery passion" (ibid.). Tyner is pictured on the front cover seated on a crate in a wintry urban wasteland, the Japanese koto across his knees, an instrument which he employs to delightful effect on the track "Valley of Life".
