Written for Bernie McGann in 2008 in anticipation of the Andrea Keller Quartet’s National Australian Collaborations Tour (2009). The concept behind the tour was to add a 5th member to the band, a guest soloist in each town we performed, as an experiment to see how much the repertoire would change and be affected by each new improvisers voice. There was no definitive concept behind this tune, it was just a response to my utter glee that Bernie agreed to play and record with us. He is truly one of the great musicians of our time.
