AllMusic Review by

After returning to more active playing in the mid-'70s, Jimmy Giuffre recorded on an occasional basis, generally once every two years. On several of his albums, he featured the keyboards and synthesizers of Pete Levin. With bassist Bob Nieske and drummer Randy Kaye completing the quartet (which was together several years), Giuffre is heard on clarinet, tenor, soprano, flute and bass flute on eight obscure pieces, including four of his originals. Although often electronic, the music has the typical thoughtfulness of Giuffre's relaxed approach and some picturesque moments.
