The original LP features three pieces: two Handy originals and a version of "Naima", recorded as a homage to saxophone legend John Coltrane, whom would die by sheer coincidence in those days (July 17).

John Handy had great chops. This album bursts open with a blisteringly-fast upbeat melody with a fabulous drum solo. The next track is a mid-tempo song with the deep, hypnotic bass line and abstract guitar/drum/horn interplay you would expect from this quintet, the horn is replaced by violin and jam goes on. I guess that would be one way to summarize these quartet, they just groove hard and heavy.
