One of Joe Farrell’s first LPs as a leader – and a stellar session that’s easily one of the early high points for the legendary CTI label! Farrell had been making some great noise in the underground during the late 60s – but here, he bursts forth as one heck of a soulful cat – working on these great modal grooves that slide out wonderfully and really have a sense of flow – a style that’s different than Joe’s later material, but equally powerful! Part of the strength of the record comes from the lineup – a key quintet of like-mined up-and-comers that includes Chick Corea on keyboards, John McLaughlin on guitar, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – players who definitely know the farther reaches of jazz, yet hang just on the inside here with Joe – providing some amazing accompaniment for his lines on soprano, tenor, and flute. Titles include “Molten Glass”, “Song Of The Wind”, “Motion”, “Follow Your Heart”, and “Circle In The Square”.Joe Farrell, known in the ’60s as a solid hard bop tenor saxophonist, branched out in the ’70s. On this near-classic album, Farrell switches between tenor, soprano, flute, and even oboe while being joined by a rather notable backup crew: keyboardist Chick Corea, guitarist John McLaughlin, bassist Dave Holland, and drummer Jack DeJohnette. In addition to a famous version of McLaughlin’s “Follow Your Heart,” the material includes originals by Farrell and Corea, and the leader makes a strong impression on each of his horns. –AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
