Label: Bag    
Released in: USA    

"Features Nels Cline, guitar; Ellery Eskelin and Rob Sudduth, tenors saxophone; Ches Smith, drums; and on this one I am the bass player, on contra-alto clarinet. We made the record in one day and the results are raw and direct. Here we are playing my song xcpf. I should mention that in addition to creating the artwork for both of these albums, Molly Barker painted a beautiful accordion-fold booklet that is included with Unfold Ordinary Mind."-Ben Goldberg
