This is a live recording with a 16-pieces band including musicians who all belong to the most creative of NYC's improvisers.  However, the members of the band come from different communities or “camps” in NYC and are brought together by Steve Swell. This recording was made at the band's third gig and the result turned out to set a milestone for creative improvisers in NYC at that time.
