"This is the first album of this trio with my homeland musicians. The music balances in between improv and composed, between heavy and beautiful, between jazz and whatever...
I've been playing most of these tunes with different ensembles of mine during the last 6 years, but they have never been released for different reasons. I realized - to be able to move on you really have to finish your unfinished work... Here it is. Enjoy!"-Liudas Mockūnas
