BEGINNING with three live concerts, each recorded in four instrumental layers, some performances (notably, trumpet) were kept intact, other layers were either re-performed or invented anew while some layers migrated from one performance to another. Some completely new tracks were made by cannibalizing parts from previous works and reshaping them. My hope is that, by weaving together the spontaneity and "imperfections" of a live concert with the "detailing" of a studio recording, something distinctive results.

I almost subtitled this record "Improved Concerts", after Mati Klarwein's "Improved Paintings" series in which ordinary flea market paintings were miraculously transformed by painting into and out of the original. But one track—which exists only as a stereo recording—has been left untouched: the "encore" at the end, 'Open Secret (Milano)'.
