Fiona's Comments

Patrick seems to have a real confidence in his playing and this tune, and the rest of the quartet seems to feed off of it. A nice straight-ahead tune, challenging yet uncomplicated. A nice performance which ends very strong. Jazz from NYC.

It's an original composition inspired by the emotional roller coaster he experienced on the day his daughter was born.
