Air, the archetypal free jazz trio, originally formed out of a similar co-operative called Reflection in 1971. Henry Threadgill on Saxophone, Fred Hopkins on bass and Steve McCall on percussions re-united in 1975 and this album when this album was recorded.

The perceptive Japanese producer Masahiko Yuh recorded Air for his Why Not label. The band went on to reach notoriety with their ragtime inspired free jazz albums. This album is the first of two LPs recorded for Why Not. The trio functions with all three members contributing musically on an equal foot. The creative solos and advanced interplay make this record sublimely satisfying and this album is an impressive document from a revolutionary period in the evolution of jazz music.
