The exact location and recording date of this concert are unknown, but the most important thing is that music is available again after its original 1977 bootleg LP release had long since disappeared. After recording Ornette's celebrated Science Fiction sessions, the quartet engaged in an extensive tour of Europe and this recording from the period ranks amongst the best in both performance and sound quality.

Randolph Denard Ornette Coleman is an American saxophonist, violinist, trumpeter and composer. He was one of the major innovators of the free jazz movement of the 1960s. Coleman's timbre is easily recognized: his keening, crying sound draws heavily on blues music. His album Sound Grammar received the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for music.
