I think that's the opening of a 1975 album "The Case of the 3 Sided 
Dream in Audio Color" on Atlantic SD 1674.... so named because it was a 
two LP set with Side 2 of the second LP left blank (silent grooves) - 
thus:  3 sides.   Lots of crossfades, with sound effects, musings by 
RRK between tracks giving it a disconnected dream like quality that is 
somehow all connected.  There were apparently 3 different sessions to 
produce the album, and each session with different players - Hilton 
Ruiz was one of three pianists listed.

Thanks for reminding me of this album.  I hadn't listened to it in 
years and it's great.
