In June 2011, a few month after the release on Ayler Records of their second recording, Electricity, the quartet of Luís Lopes (guitar), Rodrigo Amado (tenor sax), Aaron González (bass) and Stefan González (drums) went on a 10-city US East Coast tour, passing through Dallas, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Washington, Philadelphia, New York, Detroit, Chicago and Madison. That last evening in Madison, there was plenty of great energy in the air and the quartet was in full gear for their typical tight mix of free jazz, rock, funk and bluesy hard bop. On tour with them was photographer António Júlio Duarte and the disc comes in a limited edition with a 12-page booklet of his photos from the band's trip.
