Recorded Live 13/14 September 1974 at the Quartier Latin/Berlin on the "FMP-Recording-Unit"

A tremendous early showcase for Carl and Schweizer, before an appreciative Berlin audience. The album opens with one tune by each, revealing the depth of their talents, before building to the side-long climax that is the title track. A full-bore blowout, it's a classic example of Euro free improv at its peak, and deserves as wide an audience as possible.
