“So magical and breathtaking that a patient and open-eared listener should find it…irresistible” - PopMatters

The songs here include the very first notes Mary and I ever played together as we began our musical conversation at my home studio in the summer of 2011.  The album was recorded over the course of several sessions during which we worked on compositions each of us had brought to the occasion.   At each session, we decided to begin by warming up with a few improvisations, or spontaneous compositions, as I like to think of them.  This album is comprised entirely of those improvisations…every note of them, unedited.  For a different angle on our duo, we have also released a collection of those “previously composed” pieces (Emerge).
