"This album has been under personal consideration for quite some time, several years in fact. Throughout the time I have worked as an improvising musician I have been fortunate enough to work in a wide variety of settings -- from duos to large ensembles, groups that work with predesignated material or bands that are free from this, ad hoc settings as well as long term collaborations -- but the issue of creating what I could consider as 'my own' solo improvised music remained elusive despite my many efforts to deal with it. To me, it started to seem as if performing and recording solo music was a necessary aspect of creative expression."
