This session was a reunion, a celebration, a late-night altercation. It was long overdue. We dared not prepare because we knew we’d been preparing for 15 years. Friends watch each other grow up. We’d heard each other grow up…in New School practice rooms, in Smalls, in symphonic halls. So one snowy night we arrived and just began to play. It got warm inside. A majority of the tunes were done in one take, as we let ourselves be what we are, which has something to do with what we were when we met. It also has much to do with the people we met along the way. We would like to thank a few of them here, without whom this music would not be what it is: Liat, Zohar, Aziel, Tamian, Wynton Marsalis, Andrew Rueb, Rob Fleischman, Bob Sinicrope, Matt Pottinger, Sharon Avital, Maya Yadid, Todd Barkan, Bill Pierce, Michael Blake, Greg Hutchinson, Francois Zalacain and Mitch Borden.
