To come straight to the point: Uri Caine performs and records all pieces of this album in one single pass without an edit, second takes do not exist, everything is made of one cast. This music is full of tension like a unique concert as if performed for one person being alone with the artist in the room.

Uri Caine plays compositions for piano solo on a special Steinway grand piano in the former Power Station recording studio, a room with excellent acoustics and best analog technique. Producer Stefan Winter works with a microphone set-up that allows to record the sound directly to an analog master tape without any artificial reverbration and special effects and without a manipulation of the frequency ranges. Ron Saint Germain, the third man of the team, directs the recording device; especially for this live-to-analog-two-track procedure the sound engineer has a major responsibility as his work determines the specific recording level making the sound saturation unchangeable in the very moment of the recording.

"Callithump" is a somewhat burlesque serenade, an extraordinary parade.
