I think there's another Arcana disc either recently released or soon to be
so, with 2 horn players replacing Bailey, I think it's Byard Lancaster and
Pharoah Sanders, but I'm not to positive on that. But the
Bailey/Laswell/Williams disc is phenomenal, I can't recommend it highly
ebough. It's where fusion should have gone after the early
LIfetime/Mahavishnu records. It's on the Japanese DIW label, and it's
called "Arcana: The Last Wave"
