A reissue of Lonnie Liston Smith’s only live album, recorded in 1977 at Smucker’s Cabaret in Brooklyn and produced by Bob Thiele

It features Lonnie alongside his brother Donald in the wake of the success of Expansions, with a line- up completed by Dave Hubbard, Al Anderson, Ronald Dean Miller, Hollywood Barker and Michael Carvin. The album shows an intense sense of musicianship which mixes up a few tracks from previous records, including a cooking version of ‘Expansions’ and a beautiful take on both Phases of ‘Visions Of A New World’, as well as three numbers exclusive to this recording.
