AllMusic Review by

Due to a long delay which resulted in this concert starting very late, the Japanese audience was in an obviously surly mood. Paul Bley (on piano and electric keyboards), bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Barry Altschul reacted by playing with as much intensity as possible, gradually winning over the crowd. This 33-minute continuous performance (which has been reissued on CD) is certainly more fiery than many of the other recordings by the trio and has its colorful moments.
