Recorded during a four-night stand at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on April, 1978, and backed by a quartet featuring the great Tony Williams (playing at his best and least flashy on "Silver City") on drums, Rollins runs through three originals (including the excellent calypso-styled title track) and a rendition of "Autumn Nocturne" featuring a remarkable extended introductory solo which then continues throughout the song proper. Halfway through this double-album-length set, Rollins introduces his "very special friend" Donald Byrd, whose trumpet and flugelhorn share center stage with Rollins' tenor sax. At the time, Byrd had been primarily writing and producing slick soul-jazz-pop for his proteges the Blackbyrds, but he'd lost none of his prodigious chops, shown to best effect on his own "A Child's Prayer" and on Kevin Toney's "Non-Cents," where all three stars have extended solo workouts.
