-The first two tracks are original compositions from SteepleChase release A NEW ABODE.  Features the great Rich Perry on tenor, Adam Armstrong on bass and Ari Hoenig on drums.

-Tracks 3 & 4 are from an improvised session with a quartet including my improvising partner Dave Storrs on drums. With 4 voices in this setting, it is interesting to hear the levels of interchange and use of silence.

-Next are 3 tracks from Brindlebeast, the musical I am working on for the last few years.

-Three pieces #1 & #2 were recorded during the New Abode Session when the band took a break. It was the first time I dared to record myself improvising what I would consider "real time compositions", they are much more structured than my later approaches in a way - the approach was to create pieces that can actually be transcribed into written compositions.

- Finally, the first music I have ever improvised/recorded with Dave Storrs is there. You can actually hear us have a short conversation before we sit and play. Whatever synergy we have or not in its earliest form.
