The tenth Conference Call album and the first with drummer Dieter Ulrich taking over for former drummers Matt Wilson, Han Bennink, George Schuller and Gerry Hemingway, the 20 years journey for this transatlantic band leading to this album captured in the studio in Central NY while on tour, performing 3 original compositions from Ullman, 2 from Fonda, and 2 from Stevens.
"The gift of playing music together with the same people over 20 years is priceless. A long-standing musical ensemble becomes a family. The bandstand literally becomes 'home', and the musicans develop[ a very specific and inclusive language over years playing together. A 'safe' space is created. It is formed over many years of both playing, talking, travleling, disagreeing and living together. The bandstand becomes a 'sacred' space." -Michael Jefy Stevens
