This album was released in 1983 by Yosuke Yamashita, Japan's famous free jazz pianist, who has many anecdotes such as performing inside the barricades of Waseda University during the student movement for anti-establishment. Side A is a recording of a live performance at the Pit Inn in Roppongi in 1982, featuring a trio with Shuichi Ponta Murakami (dr), Tamio Kawabata (b), and Pecker (per). The B-side is a studio recording, and features Hitoshi Okano (tp), Tadanori Kogawa (tb), Koichi Matsukaze (as), Kazumei Takeda (ts), Bob Saito (ts), and Kiyoshi Sugimoto (g), creating a thrilling combo jazz piece with tight improvisations and thick horn ensemble breaks.
