In a bizarre twist of fate, Stevie Jebson is caught between two worlds as the unwitting victim of a renegade research scientist. Down on his luck and penniless, he is tricked into volunteering for a horrifying experiment--and soon finds himself trapped in another dimension, facing a wild array of dangers in a long-forgotten enchanted city. Pitted against a variety of villainous mortals, shape-changing ghouls and the Machiavellian jinn Karoof, in a world where the entire populace has been spellbound and enslaved for years, Stevie has no choice but to pluck up what courage he can to break the spell and restore the city to its rightful ruler--or face certain death.

The Latin textures and the flute work of Laws and Jorge Pardo also remind the listener of some of Corea's work in the 1970s, particularly 1972's Light as a Feather, Corea's best-selling album with an early incarnation of the band Return to Forever, and Corea's own 1976 release, My Spanish Heart.
