The improvising quartet Mujician was formed in 1988 and remained a working ensemble until Tony Levin's death in 2011. For over two decades, this British free-jazz quartet was working and refining their dynamic take on improvised jazz with the same quartet of musicians, all of whom were long-time mainstays on the English and European free-jazz scene.
On this, their sixth and final album, they do what they have always done, which is to dig in and to investigate the music and where the music takes them, which in this case is a single, 45' long piece!

"Working within the instrumental parameters of the standard post-bop combo - piano, bass, drums and saxophones - the band situates itself in a space midway between what could be called Brit-Improv and American energy music...their sound is, if anything, more exhilarating than it has ever been."
- Jazz Weekly

"With There’s No Going Back Now we are confronted with yet another example of a gripping mindset where total time and concentration takes control over an extended period. The fact that the result is such a grand, beautiful epic is some kind of justification, truly now there can indeed be no way back from instant classic status. This performance will haunt Keith Tippett, Paul Dunmall, Paul Rogers and Tony Levin forever. There’s No Going Back Now has the kind of definitive aura associated with Soft Machine’s Third or Kronos Quartet’s White Man Sleeps; there will be other music to come but this one will set the seal on everything else that follows. I guess, some days these things just happen."
- Steve Day
