Album Notes
This winter, Marian McLaughlin and her ensemble tracked a live session at WTMD for the Baltimore Hit Parade. The results yielded a loose, jazzier interpretation of a handful of songs from Lake Accotink.

This release also features two songs from Lake Accotink with alternate arrangements. "Cypress" showcases a wind arrangement by Ethan Foote, pairing flute, bassoon, and clarinet together. Listen to "Studying Metamorphosis" with drums and saxophone.

The album ends with "Herring Run" an ambient piece exploring drone effects and field recordings. Marian created this piece as live accompaniment for Valeska Populoh's crankie and shadow puppet performance "Herring Run" which debuted at Baltimore's Annual Crankie Fest at the Creative Alliance in January 2019.
