After touring extensively in 1988-89 with new members John Medeski and Douglas Yates, the E/O really hit its stride in Rudy van Gelder's studio, on Duke Ellington's 90th birthday. Includes John Dirac's orchestral arrangement of the Robert Fripp art-rock classic "Red," Gershon's wild hybrid of Miles' "Circle in the Round" and Duke's "I Got it Bad," the title track ballad feature for Charlie Kohlhase, plus two early Curtis Hasselbring compositions. Guest Mark Sandman of the rock group Morphine sings and plays underwater guitar in a bizarre remake of the Bing Crosby classic, "Temptation." The E/O's most electric recording.

"A hallucinatory fantasy." Neil Tesser, Playboy Magazine

"Hellbent on both genre-bender hijinx and genuine sonic lustre..." Josef Woodard, Musician Magazine

"The hard-swinging but rhythmically elastic 11-piece lineup makes mincemeat out of your expectations." Gene Santoro, Pulse
