“The first twenty minutes of this DVD is an interview/discussion between Tisziji Munoz and Paul Shaffer. They talk about when they first met in 1969 and how Paul learned from
Tisziji, first learning Munoz’ music and then letting go. The ever spiritual Munoz talks about learning through the native elders who give visions and guide us from the outer worlds or solar system and
eventually landing on the planet Earth when we are born. Paul asks Tisziji how the band prepared for this gig, but Tisziji says that there was no rehearsal, he knew how to choose the right musicians. The concert footage is well captured and everyone in the band is in great form. Everyone gets a chance to solo and each solo is something else. The sextet is completely transcendent, lifting the audience out
of their seats and into another dimension. Since this was filmed, the great Rashied Ali passed away, and the Village Underground closed its doors to performance.

“This disc is about 48 minutes long and it features a cosmic event, a meeting of six spirits coming together to help us travel to other worlds. You can tell that something special was going on that night.
