About the Album

With an ongoing residency at Chicago's famed Fitzgerald’s over the last 5 years, saxophonist Jarod Bufe took the opportunity to develop a body of new compositions while honing an intuitive group aesthetic with this band of top-flight Chicago artists. Written during a period of life changes, Bufe's tunes convey all the emotions that implies, but through the creative rhythmic vitality generated by drummer Jon Deitemyer and bassist Matt Ulery, the feeling of hope and of the ongoing search is never lost. Guitarist Tim Stine's improvisatory approach with surprising, unfurling lines, beside his understated chordal accompaning of Bufe's tradition-rich lyricism, defines this very personal and conversational session.
