The title, "Eòlas nan Ribheid" could be translated as "The Wisdom of the Reeds", and might be thought of as a dream in which one of the great piobaireachd players meets Johnny Hodges in some ante-room of the after-life and they trade phrases interwoven with their memories; but the dreamer has also supplied items from his own back-catalogue of phrases from Weber, Brahms and from his own imagination.
