This album contains several brand new arrangements, and also some previously unreleased versions of CGT classics. Howard Givens did an amazing job on the mix, making this our most "acoustic" album yet. Each of these tracks marks a significant milestone in our 20 years of work together. Although all the pieces were recorded in different studios at different times, Howard found a way to make it sound as if you were sitting in the same room with us, sharing the experience.
Tony Levin is featured on 3 tracks playing upright bass and cello. Chicago guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque plays some beautiful classical guitar on an arrangement of Vivaldi's 'Winter'.
