Den japanska pianisten/kompositören Toshiko Akiyoshi och den amerikanske tenorsaxofonisten/flöjtisten Lew Tabackin ledde länge ett av jazzens främsta storband. Akiyoshi lät ofta sin japanska bakgrund färga musiken, som t ex i den svit som fyller skivans ena sida. Albumtext av Leonard Feather.

"...These 1976 studio sessions make up one of her best overall albums, which includes performances of four originals. "Studio J" actually dates from 1957, while the pianist was studying at Berklee, and was originally recorded in a trio setting. Akiyoshi stretches out for several choruses, and Bill Reichenbach contributes a pair of solid trombone solos. "Transience" is a richly textured ballad that showcases baritone saxophonist Bill Perkins, trombonist Britt Woodman (a Duke Ellington alum), and Gary Foster on soprano sax. "Sumie" features Tabackin's mesmerizing flute (an instrument for which he should receive wider acclaim); he also uses a piccolo later in the piece. "Minamata" is an elaborate three-part suite that features a 13-year-old vocalist (Michiru Mariano), a fine flügelhorn solo by Bobby Shew, and narration by several Japanese artists, resulting in a stunning tone poem..."
