Three different groups in performances utilising frameworks devised by John Stevens sending the music into unexpected areas. From mid-1968 there is the unusual line-up of JOHN STEVENS (percussion), NORMA WINSTONE (voice), KENNY WHEELER (fluegelhorn), PAUL RUTHERFORD (trombone) and TREVOR WATTS (bass clarinet) in a wide-ranging half-hour sequence. Another half-hour sequence features the superb 1971 quartet of STEVENS (percussion & voice), JULIE TIPPETT (voice & guitar), WATTS (soprano sax) and RON HERMAN (double bass) reintroducing some emotional elements of Free Jazz into the group improvising. Finally, there is a short performance of the hyper-minimalist piece 'Flower' by the 1973 duo of STEVENS and WATTS. 72 minutes - all previously unissued.
