Recorded by Katherine Miller at The Studio, New York on December 20, 2004.

Guitarist Samo Salamon has been influenced by several kinds of music, including classical. While composers like Bartok and Messiaen ignite his imagination, he can also cut a swath out of rock, feed it into his compositions, and get the whole to fit in the thick of modern jazz. The blend often makes for compelling listening.

Salamon lets his music speak in several tongues. In doing so, he does not forsake logic or cohesion. As a guitar player, he lets insight hatch improvisation. Together they make for a winning combination, as wonderfully shows this entire self-composed CD, which boasts a supporting band of renowned players from the New York jazz scene.
