All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
One of Gary McFarland's major works, this orchestral jazz suite originally on Skye and reissued on CD by the audiophile DCC Jazz label utilizes a big band and some strings along with the influence of rock, classical, and jazz. The six-movement piece is ultimately a bit downbeat about the future of the United States as seen from 1968. The emphasis is on the ensembles rather than any individual voices, and the overall results are certainly listenable but less memorable than one might hope considering the potential scope of the work.
