This record has a very unique sound. It was recorded in Ottawa while on a six week tour of Canada in 1995. The studio where we recorded was not great and when we mixed the record the mixing engineer had to do a serious recovery mission to save the album. Luckily he did a great job and the result was a very large sounding album with a mellower ECM side. I was in a real compositional growth phase and I enjoy listening back to the tunes on this record.
