Glorious Monster in the Bell of the Horn

“THE Glorious Monster in the Bell of the Horn” is complex and often obscure, but a formidable beauty, and wit come through it. It is, in its present state, an exciting possibility waiting to become fully real.

Written by Larry Neal, and with sharp, lean score by Max Roach, it is layered exploration of the conscious and subconscious development of several black people. It ranges back and forth through time and mingles real events with dreams and emotions. – NY Times review by Richard Eder
