"This is perhaps the most unusual improvisation album that Henry Kaiser has produced. The 2-CD is something in the tradition of INVITE THE SPIRIT, in that it fuses other world music traditions with American free improvisation.

In this case we have a truly unlikely mixture of ancient Chinese music, western electric jazz fusion, Carnatic Classical music of South India, and free improvisation. All 6 players are individualistic virtuosos, who are true innovators. Together they become something much greater than the sum of their parts, with a goal of musically transporting themselves and the listeners to a place that could never be imagined, only discovered."

Henry also sent me this personal aside: "one thing I like about this record is that when I play acoustic like Derek Bailey style on it Manring deals with it perfectly - he might as well be Barry Guy in that context. It’s true that Manring can pretty much do anything with no effort."
