The Joe Lovano track does not have any direct connection to the I.M. Terrell H.S., but, as David notes, "the compositional feeling, instrumentation, and title make clear that this track is an homage to Ornette and his classic quartet."

Indeed, not to mention Cornell Dupree and King Curtis. Quite remarkable, really.
