AllMusic Review by

This live set is a reunion of sorts of various elements of the long-lived, multiple personality British neo-jazz outfit, including drummer John Marshall, who took over after Robert Wyatt's departure, longtime bassist Hugh Hopper, mid-1970s guitarist John Etheridge, and saxophonist and keyboardist Elton Dean, who died in February 2006, just after this album's release. The set includes Etheridge's funky "Ash," as well as Hopper's "Kings and Queens," where virtuoso soloing underpins loping bass lines.
