Originally this album was released in 1994 under the title "In The Moment". Due to unforseen circumstances it was never properly made available to the public. In 1992 this was one of Romus' first major CD productions and his third jazz album.

"Working with Chico Freeman was a childhood dream. Early in my years of musical discovery Chico was one of two major influences on my development (Arthur Blythe being the other). With the support of the now defunct Oakland based Jazz In Flight, private donors, and credit cards, this project of original music was made a reality. It also reflects a style of the jazz idiom that Chico himself had a strong hand in forging twenty years before this was recorded. With his inspiration and guidance we were able to bring this style to the sound stage during four concerts in Oakland, San Francisco and Santa Cruz California in October 1992." -Rent Romus
