Marion Brown capped his '70s return to Impulse! by diverting with the serene and colorful Vista. One of the altoist's least avant dates, its lineup features nine additional musicians such as drummer Ed Blackwell and bassist Reggie Workman, plus Stanley Cowell on acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes. While Brown wrote only the blissful coaster "Vista" itself, the five other compositions are well-chosen, starting with an inviting version of Cowell's "Maimoun" and an impressionistic and deeply meditative take on Stevie Wonder's "Visions" fronted by Allen Murphy. The second side is notable most for Harold Budd's placid "Bismillahi 'Rrahmani 'Rrahim," with Brown wafting softly over three discreet keyboardists including the composer on celeste. (Budd, joined by Brown, revisited "Bismillahi 'Rrahmani 'Rrahim" on The Pavilion of Dreams.) - Allmusic
