Lab Snivel is the third track from an album which is, in essence, a deconstruction of the song Time Remembered by pianist and composer Bill Evans. None of the material on this album was collectively rehearsed and it was recorded live in one studio session. The track titles are anagrams of the composer’s name (a device that Mr. Evans himself employed on several occasions throughout his career). This was done to have a bit of fun with the task, but also as a means to offer the selections on this recording as one complete work. To that end, the track order itself is indeed arbitrary and designed to be organized at the discretion of the listener who wishes to explore the piece in its entirety.
Personnel: David Pedrick, guitar; Ryan Kauffman, soprano saxophone; Steve Meashey, bass; Dave Young, drums.
