“…"New drummer Pheeroan akLaff brought a fresh approach and crackling edge to the trio Air on this 1983 live date, recorded at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Hopkins didn't mesh as smoothly with akLaff on this date, although they found a comfortable meeting place by mid-album. Henry Threadgill, as always, was a compelling soloist, especially on alto sax."             (source: AllMusic.com, S. Yanow)
