John Surman(bs), Barre Phillips(b,vo), Albert Mangelsdorff(tb,g,vo), Stu Martin(ds,perc,synth). The album features A4, a primitive Afro-jazz track reminiscent of Art Ensemble of Chicago, featuring synthesizers, B 1, and B2, which is full of a sense of openness and evokes a scene like encountering an elephant in the jungle. The ethnic free jazz reminiscent of Scandinavian folk jazz by Don Cherry and Edward Vesala is truly wonderful. It's like a sparkling life force full of energy lurking in the midst of chaos. You can hear the image of John Surman's ECM work, which was featured in the guidebook "OBSCURE SOUND REVISED EDITION", in a different way here.
