This album is the result of working musical association between Milford Graves and Andrew dating back to April of 1969. Since that time they have coordinated and performed concert hall engagements, cultural center appearances, and performed a work for NBC Television. It should be noted that on most of these occasions the efforts and talents of the drummer Rasheid Ali were also incorporated.

Acknowledgement should also be made to pianist, composer, Cecil Taylor whose program for the musical arts in New York City during January 1974 at Columbia University's Wollman Auditorium, aided in the realization of this recording.

Additional acknowledgements to Nick Moy of Bonitza Melodies Production Company and Fred Seibert for his engineering assistance.
