Allmusic:
Composer George Russell's early-'60s Riverside recordings are among his most accessible. For this set (the CD reissue adds an alternate take of the title cut to the original program), Russell and his very impressive sextet (which is comprised of trumpeter Don Ellis, trombonist Garnett Brown, Paul Plummer on tenor, bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Pete La Roca) are challenged by the complex material; even Charlie Parker's blues "Au Privave" is transformed into something new. It is particularly interesting to hear Don Ellis this early in his career. The most famous selection, a very haunting version of "You Are My Sunshine," was singer Sheila Jordan's debut on records.

Tracks
-1. "Au Privave" (Charlie Parker) - 6:21
-2. "Zig-Zag" (Carla Bley) - 4:03
-3. "The Outer View" - 10:03
-4. "The Outer View" [alternate take] - 9:26 Bonus track on CD reissue

-6. "D.C. Divertimento" - 9:14
