Axiom – With inspiration by Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius, John Scofield, and hip-hop, Axiom is a funky number featuring Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos, and a guitaresque distorted 6-string bass solo.

Funky Love – The first track on the EP with horns, Funky Love features a slapped solo performed on the K. Butler MC33 bass and Rhodes electric piano.

Falmouth – A day exploring the port city Falmouth, Jamaica provided inspiration for this Reggae tune. The centerpiece of the EP, Falmouth contains an adventurous bass solo played through an old Zoom pedal.

Pearl – The title was taken from the Bible verses Matthew 13:45-46. Pearl features Rhodes and slapped bass solos, and some tasty synth pads and flourishes by Jimmy Butler.

Messier 51 – A space bass interlude named for the Whirlpool Galaxy.

Zoom – An up-tempo funk number featuring George Duke inspired synth melody and soloing on top of a loop and slapped bass. The “chorus” provides a melodic release with some TOP influenced horns parts on the bridge.
