One of my favorite things about spending time with my friends Joshua, Sam and Jackson is how we each have very profound conversations about musicians we both enjoy; not only do we talk about all time great, as well as niche musicians we both admire, and enjoy but also conversate about them from several different perspectives.

When I went to write the 5 new songs we added for this album in May 2021, as oddly as it is, having every musical possibility at my disposal for the melodies and chords made it a very efficient process to write the 5 new songs relatively quickly. Those being; Nell's to Tropicana, JOSH2HUH!, Agung, New Bird Word, and Weeklongs Endcap (which was arranged from a melody I wrote in my head and memorized a few months prior). 

In these songs I wanted to capture the fun these musicians bring to their virtuosic performances, the incredible range of styles they are virtuosic in playing, and in a way that was nothing less than melodically compelling. As well as write something that fit my improvisation style. Thank you for listening and for reading, all correspondence appreciated.
