Album Notes
Back From Beyond is another step in the evolution of the music of the Rich Halley 4. The Rich Halley 4 is about compositional group improvisation and this recording documents why and how. The album showcases a variety of compositional styles and approaches which are realized through intuitive group improvisation. The result is a powerful and varied soundscape that combines imaginative writing with exciting solos and diverse moods and textures.

"A free rider from the Left Coast, tenor saxophonist-composer Rich Halley is a powerful player with one foot in the Coleman Hawkins-Don Byas camp and the other confidently striding into the edgier realms of such ferocious players as David S. Ware and, at his most intense, Peter Brötzmann or Albert Ayler... In New York, he’d be a star on the avant-garde scene; but for now, you have to fly to Portland to see this tenor titan perform."
-Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times
