Eero Koivistoinen, who prior to this album had only recorded jazz acoustically, had been listening to some of the heavier fusion coming out of America and decided to create, and experiment in, sound using electric instruments. This was to include electric soprano sax, two basses and two drummers to establish what can be heard as a rock solid funky sound bed from which Koivistoinen sears through on his flame-thrower like sax.
