The trio on the recording was Giuffre's second drummerless group. He said at the time that the trio was “searching for a free sense of tonality and form”.[3]

It was remastered, remixed and re-released by ECM in 1992 as a double-album with the trio's other 1961 Verve recording, Fusion (with three previously unissued tracks from the August sessions).
