about

In many ways this is a continuation of my last album, Long Pair Bond, which features the same trio: Þorgrímur Jónsson on bass and Scott McLemore on drums. The album consists of 4 of my compositions, 3 by Þorgrímur, 2 by Scott and 1 Paul Motian composition. Plus there are a couple of "Spins" (improvised pieces) which is a continuation from my album The Dream.

Most of the material was developed while we were on the road in 2012, but the first two tunes on the album are more recent compositions. After the new year, we started rehearsing regularly in a small recital hall at the school where Þorgrímur and I teach. Eventually we realized that was the place we felt best and we decided to record the album there, and we recruited the brilliant Kjartan Kjartansson to build a studio around us.

I couldn't be happier with the results. I hope you are too.
