Album Cover
John Carter / Bobby Bradford
Self Determination Music

Album US 1970 on Flying Dutchman label
Jazz (Contemporary Jazz, Free Jazz)

There are no formal instrumental credits on the (gatefold) sleeve (nor indeed any information about recording date/venue). However the byliner by Robert Levin suggests that this is the John Carter & Bobby Bradford Quartet, with Carter on reeds, Bradford on trumpet, Tom Williamson on bass and Buzz Freeman on drums (see their other Flying Dutchman release, Flight For Four). 'VAN GELDER' is stamped in the runout.
