This is the second collaboration of Pharoah and Foday, after Message >From Home. From liner notes by Foday: "My friends in California always wanted me to play with Pharoah. They encouraged me to combine the kora with the saxophone. Last year Bill Laswell arranged for us to work together. We jammed in the studio and then I played on Pharoah´┐Żs CD, Message From Home. For that album I wrote the piece, "Kumba". Now he has a chance to play on my project. I like the way Pharoah listens and quickly responds".
