Album review: Billy Bang's 'Prayer for Peace'

From the Los Angeles Times:

A jazz veteran who has collaborated with Sun Ra, Don Cherry and Sam Rivers as well as leading his own ensembles, violinist Billy Bang (born Billy Walker in 1947) may not be a household name. Yet listeners who might ordinarily shy away from the at-times turbulent world of free jazz shouldn’t miss this recording, a rewarding and often gorgeous record that hopefully will remedy Bang’s comparatively low profile.
