There are five cuts. CUT ONE is a traditional tune, while the other cuts don't even have names--they are indicated on the album jacket by little diagrams.

CUT ONE. This piece has a real name, You Stepped Out of a Dream. For the first minute, sax plus bass only for one minute, play the tune. At one minute, both sax and bass start improvising. There is never any trumpet or drums in this piece. The sax plays bebop style throughout. At 3 min, 50 sec, there is a lengthy bass solo. At 5 min, 40 sec, the sax returns. At 6 min, 20 sec, the original tune returns. The piece is never frantic, fast, or "out there." CUT ONE is 7 min, 10 sec in all.

CUT TWO. Flute, drums, and bass start this piece. The tune is slow, jagged, and spacey. (It could be something expected from the first album by Return to Forever.) At 2 min, Barry Altschul does a solo on his big collection of cymbals, gongs, and flexitone. At 3 min, 50 sec, the flute and bass return. The trumpet materializes at 4 min, 20 sec, but the piece ends only ten seconds later. CUT TWO belongs to Barry Altschul.

CUT THREE. This is the great stand-out of the album. The sax, trumpet, and drums play a pre-determined, jagged bebop tune. Throughout the entire piece, Dave Holland plays hand-plucked thumps, sounding like pig farts. There is no walking bass at all in this piece. At 3 min, 20 sec, the sax lets out some honks, and at 3 min, 50 sec, the sax lets out some squeaks. The trumpet starts at 4 min, and here we hear only the trumpet plus bass and drums. At 5 min, 30 sec, the sax returns, and at this point there starts a relatively brief meandering episode, which includes some stupid-sounding smacking noises. At 6 min, 45 sec, the original tune resumes and the piece ends at 8 min.

CUT FOUR.
