Not your average free improv blow-out, this is lyrical, inventive & intelligent. Mellow and beautiful enough to appeal to a wide range of ears. The recording is fantastic with a lovely room ambience. Rory C

Daisy and Vandermark have a strong collaborative track record and the addition of Thieke is equally convincing...clarinet and bass clarinet is a pairing not often heard...simply high quality. John Cratchley
