“Five facts about this recording:

1. Initially a sax-tuba-piano gig was planned. In truly improvised fashion, the group was extended to a quartet at the last moment, as Roger Turner happened to be in town and agreed to join. Helen Bledsoe sat in for the second set.

2. The recording captures the first live appearance of Alexey Lapin outside of his home country, Russia.

3. The continuity of the music (sequence of the pieces) has been preserved on the recording, and in general very little has been cut.

4. All the pieces have been freely improvised except (2) which is an improvisation based on a composed melody.

5. No animals have been harmed.”-Red Toucan
