Fred Anderson celebrated his 80th birthday in March 2009, performing with long time friend and collaborator Kidd Jordan (tenor saxophone), Jeff Parker (guitar), Harrison Bankhead (bass) and Chad Taylor (drums) at his celebrated Chicago club, The Velvet Lounge. Anderson has not recorded much in the past few years, and so every recording by him is an event. Here it becomes all the more vital, standing as a testament to the power that he and Jordan can still invest in their playing, which is quite unbelievable. Three tracks make up the performance but they clock in at over 68 minutes. The first two are the hub, with "21st Century Chase Pt. 1" going past 36 minutes. That would be enough to take anyone's breath away, but Anderson and Jordan are constantly in the thick of it making their level of energy amazing.

The opening "21st Century Chase, P. " clocks in at nearly 40 minutes, leading off with two minutes of Anderson playing solo, shrieking and squeezing soul out of his horn before the rest of the ensemble swoops in and locks into a relentless, hard-driving groove. While it's packed with brilliant playing, the exhilaration soon turns to exhaust - even the most hardcore avant-garde lovers might tire of the interminable track. 21st Century Chase, Pt. 2" finds the two tenors continuing their battle, meandering between sounds melodic and mangled for another 15 minutes.
