Collaboration between Vancouver drummer and Canadian/US/European (avant) jazz musicians is diverse in colors and moods.

This Canadian/American/European collaboration is the brainchild of Vancouver drummer Dylan van der Schyff, who formed the group, brought it together for Vancouver's 2003 jazz festival, and thoughtfully sequenced the record. An excellent DSD studio recording and multi-channel mix accentuate the music's colors and moods. Each of the performers (apart from Dylan) contributed a substantial composition or two to the session, resulting in a very diverse yet complementary range of styles, moving between modern and avant jazz and free playing.

The collective depth of the musicianship is evident throughout in the soloing and group dynamic. The record feels fully realized as a unique collective creation, often intense but with a high quotient of lyricism and humor. This is not surprising considering these players' shared experience at the time: pianist Achim Kaufmann and reedist Michael Moore had performed together frequently (including a brief tour with van der Schyff); Moore and basilst Mark Helias had known each other for over 25 years, and van der schyff and trmpeter Brad Turner went back over 10 years on the Vancouver scene.

DSD recording mixed in analogue to 2 + 5 channel DSD.
