Recorded on October 1, 1983, at Sweet Silence Studios, Copenhagen.

Johnny Dyani performed widely throughout Europe, then moved to Copenhagen in the early 1970s, and about ten years later to Sweden, recording many albums under his own name. He recorded with Dollar Brand (Abdullah Ibrahim), Don Cherry, Steve Lacy, David Murray, Joseph Jarman, Clifford Jarvis, Don Moye, Han Bennink, Brotherhood of Breath, Mal Waldron, Pierre Dørge and many others. He left a number of superb recordings on Steeple Chase and this is his most ambitious project with colourful instrumentation including steel drums. 

This Steeple Chase LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed with virgin vinyl at Pallas.
