Stimulated by the virtuosic bassist Tatsu Aoki during a series of freely improvised but purposeful duets, Mitchell utilizes circular breathing liberally, sometimes performing a wild string of notes (such as on "The Journey") and on other selections sticking mostly to one area of his horn ("Glide"). His chops and technique are in top form, and although this avant-garde date will not convert more conservative listeners, it is a fine showcase for the creative talents of Roscoe Mitchell and Tatsu Aoki.
