AllMusic Review by

The name Mati Klarwein is by no means recognizable, even to jazz fanatics, but it is his sensual, Afrocentric sci-fi artwork which adorns the Miles Davis LPs Bitches Brew and Live-Evil. On this album, percussionist Per Tjernberg interprets Klarwein's spoken word passages (in English, even though he was born in Sweden). Also included are 11 paintings by Klarwein, and though the CD scale can hardly do them justice, the album is worth the money simply for the artwork.
