About the Album

"Horn multi-instrumentalist Tom Christensen's third release in six years is a pleasure from start to finish because it manages to simultaneously embrace thought and emotion, interweaving the two in constantly evolving, often unpredictable ways. Some of the starkest and most penetrating moments come through on "In Memory of My Feelings," which pairs bass clarinets and soprano saxophone with deep, ringing, ritualistic percussion, communicating a sense of melancholy loss matched with a seemingly paradoxical feeling of rebirth. One of the best records of 2005." Nils Jacobson, AllAboutJazz.com
