This long sought-after album, Air Raid, was recorded almost a year after the first session Air Song (WYN 79403) for Japanese Masahiko Yuh's Why Not label, on July 15th 1976. The session once again features Henry Threadgill throughout as the main lead voice. Threadgill switches between Chinese musette, also saxophone, flute and hubkaphone (a percussive instrument that he put together using hubcaps) as well as contributing all four original compositions. The group who were heavily associated with the famous AACM enterprise display a close interaction between Threadgill, Fred Hopkins on bass and Steve McCall on percussion.
