sample the album:
"The compositions for this group were designed to be played with less of a pulse-driven approach than my earlier work with the Jon Lloyd Quartet-the ebb and flow of the music takes place organically according to the direction each performer wishes to take. Method maintains a straight pulse almost throughout, but not in a classic free-jazz manner."-Jon Lloyd
