Album Notes
The Wounded Quartet is a suite of four pieces which developed from a session of piano improvisations recorded in the late fall of 2010. After adding the bass parts I invited Peggy Lee to come in and do her cello performance. Instead of having her study the pieces and prepare, I wanted her to react with a minimum of preparation. I allowed her to listen to each piece just once, and then had her respond immediately with a recorded performance. One take only.

I’m not sure why I insisted on these restrictions. Peggy and I had already worked on a few pieces and I was excited by her skill and remarkable intuition. Also I believe there is potential delight in the act of searching for things, and great value to be found in the singular, the irretrievable…
