On November 11th, 1964, Giuseppi Logan went to Bell Sound Studios to record his first album for the newly formed ESP-Disk label. Bernard Stollman discovered Giuseppi and others who would form the nucleus of his label at the October Revolution Concert of 1964. For the recording, Giuseppi chose friends and fellow music companions Don Pullen and Milford Graves, and added bassist extraordinaire Eddie Gomez. The session is rich with imagination, and added to the dimension of musicians who would become the roster of ESP-Disk'.
