This is the first gig that the youngsters Eugene Chadbourne and Toshinori Kondo played with the veteran of the new music scene - Han Bennink - who recorded with Eric Dolphy almost twenty years earlier.

Apart from playing their usual instruments, this CD is a unique opportunity to hear Han Bennink on tenor and soprano saxophones as well as trombone and piano. Eugene Chadbourne tries his hand on piano aswell.

Powerful, crazy, hilarious! They even hit the be-bop once or twice.
