Album Notes
Pool of Mirrors is spontaneous, intuitive music; no plan, no composition -- just in-the-moment conversations between a sax player and a bassist. It's got flaws, which is how live improvised music naturally sounds. We avoided the temptation to fix all the flaws using digital magic, and let the music speak for itself.

We've both studied music for many years, but at the moment of creation, we can't know where we'll end up; we just play. And afterward, neither of us can explain how we got to where we did. The result is something more than the sum of the parts. Playing less is better than playing more. Responding to the unexpected is more interesting than repeating a fixed idea. In a musical discourse, peace and discord can inhabit the same space, without the risk of creating a lasting conflict.

Recording in a small cabin on the northern California coast surrounded by redwoods and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Pacific Woods is: Harrison Goldberg and Dave Jordan.

Harrison has performed on tenor, alto and soprano saxophone with a variety of groups, including Neon Egypt, Lavender Fog, BAKU and Stardust Messenger. An alumnus of Berklee College of Music, Harrison has spent a lifetime in music from East to West Coasts. Dave plays a left-handed electric bass guitar, and is also a recording engineer. Years ago, Dave played keyboards with Limbic Sanctuary, an eclectic folk-rock band. Prior to forming Pacific Woods, Dave & Harrison were members of the world music group Cloudfire. Special guest J. Simon Burnett composed & performed the ambient background on track #3: Sirocco.
