Recorded towards the end of George's time in New York City and assembled in his new home of Memphis, this, his first solo album, collects a number of different threads of his musical stylings and interests and the performers are nearly all 'a-list' members of the downtown New York / Knitting Factory scene.

"Alto and tenor saxophonist George Cartwright always seems to perform eccentric and unpredictable music, and that certainly holds true with this project. Five of the 11 selections (all written or co-written by Cartwright) feature the leader in an ensemble with guitar, accordion, organ, bass, and drums.
Although the music is avant-garde, it is not completely free and the themes usually set the mood and direction for the improvisations. Other tunes include such notables as Zeena Parkins on organ and accordion, pianist Myra Melford, and singer Ann Rupel. Because the music is so complex and unusual, it will take several listens to fully appreciate, but it is worth the effort."
– AllMusic
