A new album of a living legend of our jazz and his famous band. Besides apparent musical merits the disc is notable for high-class design (in a familiar for music lovers ArtBeat style) and for the excellent quality of the record.

The album is arranged as a purposely absurd array of styles, I would say by rules of surrealism.…  Besides the compositions recorded in new world, ECM or funky fusion styles you may hear sound of a string quartet, a computer phonogram in late Joe Zawinul style, poems by Nicolay Oleynikov, a poet from OBERIU group, and a song from the far pre-war past in the album author’s performance.”
