Initially planned as a trio with Russian Alexey Lapin, Roger Turner's presence expanded this to a quartet, and then flautist Helen Bledsoe joined to complete the quintet as recorded live at the LOFT.

Lapin / Poore / Schubert / Turner / Bledsoe: Seek it Not with Your Eyes (Red Toucan)
Label: Red Toucan    
Released in: Canada    

"Five facts about this recording:

1. Initially a sax-tuba-piano gig was planned. In truly improvised fashion, the group was extended to a quartet at the last moment, as Roger Turner happened to be in town and agreed to join. Helen Bledsoe sat in for the second set.

2. The recording captures the first live appearance of Alexey Lapin outside of his home country, Russia.

3. The continuity of the music (sequence of the pieces) has been preserved on the recording, and in general very little has been cut.

4. All the pieces have been freely improvised except (2) which is an improvisation based on a composed melody.

5. No animals have been harmed."-Red Toucan
