Live 1979 recordings from Takayanagi's quartet performing his "Second Concept", mostly recordings of Lennie Trisanto and Lee Konitz compositions. This concert comes right before his studio release of "Cool Jojo", here stepping up the energy in live performance. The double CD issue includes a 20 page booklet in Japanese and English by guitarist Koichi Hiroki, a student of Takayanagi's school for 17 years.

The first orders for this release come with a 3rd CD EP, the Second Concept trio performing "Froggy Day".
