Album Notes
The overall effect is like that of a book of poems. When you close the book, you know you have allowed an emotional and spiritual process to happen inside you, but you can't quite sum it up. It all seemed so simple, yet you open the book and start again...
– Tom McGrath

- Steve Kettley: tenor and soprano saxophones, flute
- Dick Lee: clarinet, bass clarinet, and e-flat clarinet
- Henry Shaftoe: vibraphone and percussion
- Nicky Hind: piano and synthesizers

Nicky Hind composes music with healing and meditative qualities. Elements and e-motions, atmospheres and imaginations, inhabit a musical world not easily placed within temporal and cultural coordinates. A Scottish native resident in California, Nicky Hind creates music in harmony and balance with nature and the current of life.

Hind's half-dozen compositions use simple, flexible, melodic and rhythmic components to create an evocative, layered soundscape. Jazz soloists Steve Kettley and Dick Lee…add a distinctive voice to the music's constantly modulating flow, setting up a complex and fascinating musical dialogue, which staves off accusations of mere prettiness. Hindsight makes excellent musical sense of the relationship between writing and improvisation, maintaining an integral relationship between the individual voice and the base composition.
