Inflation Blues is an album by Jack DeJohnette's Special Edition featuring Chico Freeman, John Purcell, and Rufus Reid, with Baikida Carroll added on four tracks, recorded in 1982 and released on the ECM label in 1983.[3] The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states, "this is a particularly strong outing by the 1982 edition of the group... it is not surprising that the music is adventurous yet quite coherent, with the solo and group statements being both spontaneous and logical. Recommended".[4]
