About the track

Aching Sarah features the exquisite trumpet playing of Michael Leonhart. Leonhart and Friedlander met while working together on Yoko Ono's recent CD,Between My Head and The Sky,and began exchanging sessions, playing on each others' projects. Friedlander has been captivated by the trumpet/cello combination since his first-ever recording back in 1980, bassist/composer Harvie S's quintet recording,Underneath It All(Gramavision). He continued to explore the creative potential of the two instruments in his later work with Dave Douglas and the String Band projects of the late 90's (Parallel Worlds, Five, Convergence)."Aching Sarah"also features the playing of longtime Friedlander associates Trevor Dunn (bass) and Satoshi Takeishi (percussion.)

"Aching Sarah"is part of Friedlander's Cutting-Room Floor Series. "I imagined that characters from movies who are cut from a film live on," he explains. "With lives half realized, they exist in a kind of limbo, unable to live out the arc of their scripted lives." Erik Friedlander, cello, electronics, piano programming; Michael Leonhart, trumpet, mellophone; Trevor Dunn, acoustic bass; Satoshi Takeishi, percussion.
