Album Notes
A re-issue from one of the first Jazz from Rant cds ever produced, from 1993. This album features the poetry and vocals of Jeannette Lambert performing along with the two members of the first Lonely Universe duo, Michel Lambert, drums, and Michael White, trumpet, as well as Perry White saxophone, Rob Piltch and Reg Schwager guitars, Hugh Marsh violin, and Dianne Aitken bass flute. They performed at the du Maurier Theatre Centre in Toronto and the Winnipeg New Music Festival. The music was created when most of the musicians were living around Queen Street in Toronto, listening and performing improvised music, contemporary new music, sound poetry, industrial punk jazz and bebop. As a result, the recording is a cutting edge example of the melding of all these styles. It is being re-issued in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Jazz from Rant label in 2015.

Lonely Universe was invited to participate in the compilation created by the Canada Council for the Arts celebrating the United Nations 50th Anniversary. Their opening selection from "à la plage" entitled "Anchor" is included in the boxed set, and the compilation itself is illustrated with original paintings by Michel Lambert.
