Composers response to the Track: (T.O.S.O.T.E.O. - Allegro: Andante & Moderato & Finale) -
"Encouraged to do something with an old upright bass & bow standing in the corner of the recording studio, the next day's session had me writing a brief 'Head' for the intro & repeated as 'Out-Statement' - and told my friend the reed player to go for it while I tried to channel Miroslav Vitous, Charles Mingus & Eric Dolphy; while not knowing what I was doing with a Double Basso string & bow rig.
One of the most fantastic and magical musical performance participation encounters of my life I tell ya!"
