1987 album records a three-hour live session between American saxophonist Ric Halstead who have left career on Hong Kong, and Hong Kong-born jazz guitarist Eugene Pao, and Eddie Gomez as a guest, a bass player best known with the Bill Evans Trio, who visited the city in 1986. It's simply wonderful content and is known by those in the know for the high quality of each performance, with an emphasis on "acoustic" while leaving space for improvisation. Among the highlights are "Kindred Spirits" which is full of tension and graceful performance, "Time Slips Away", a beautiful session of over 8 minutes. There is also a Hong Kong press of a small rod, and LP is known as a phantom piece.
