jhardycarroll Another splendid record from one of my favorite guitarists. With each passing year Jeff just gets better and better, more inventive and courageous. I hear elements of Chicago Underground and Tortoise in these compositions, and though Chad Taylor is absent the drums are in expert hands (especially the wonderful Jay Bellrose.) I listen to this all the time and it never gets old.

pjschruck This opened up my ears to the recent jazz-movement. A famliliar jazz sound and a familiar Tortoise & Istotope 217 sound added together- but totaly refreshed - great harnonys. Thaks for this! Favorite track: Executive Life.

The vinyl version features the 8 original tracks on wax packaged in hand screen-printed and foil-stamped artwork by Sonnenzimmer.
