"Excerpts from sleeve notes:
in the spring of 2007, my dear friend and film maker andrew lampert was invited to do a piece at the kill your timid notion festival in dundee, scotland, and formed a trio with steve and i along with the great mark sanders to play our versions of classic gershwin songs to his images... over that short period of time we were over there, steve and i had a great time not just playing but also wandering around the town of dundee - such exploring is also one of my specialities...
then not too long after, i believe it was that following summer that steve came over to new york and while we were having lunch together, we thought 'wouldn't that be nice to do a birthday concert together in our birth month...?' then it turned out andy happened to be scheduled to curate first 2 weeks of march at the stone in new york...
we both got very excited and started to organize the practical matters and thought we needed one more person to round up the group... just in case things don't work out with only two of us... we both knew peter and thought he would be a great person to play and hang out with... then fate had its twist and andy had to move his curatorship to may, but elliott sharp who was curating march was generous enough to keep our date in march... then jim staley from roulette gave us a date to help bring steve over... then we added a couple more concerts to do a mini tour...
so it seems everything somehow began with very vague ideas and somehow it all became true and now here's the cd..."-okkyung lee
