Album Notes
Tom Teasley is playing over fifteen different instruments on this recording, ancient to futuristic. Given the many bird references in the script I have chosen to use a variety of flutes for the melodic lines. The Armenian-American composer Alan Hovhaness is an inspiration for much of the melodic
and thematic material. I'm humbly paying tribute to my teachers and influences from a variety of sources. As mentioned, Joe Morello, with his time bending experiments with Dave Brubeck has been a great inspiration. Frame drum master, Glen Velez, has shaped my concept of a multi-styled hybrid musician. The production values of T-Bone Burnett and guitarist Bill Frisell have also weighed heavily on this recording regarding the manipulation of sound. My great friend, colleague, bass player and computer guru, Jim Robeson has contributed more than words can express.

Rhythm is the lifeblood of the universe, I'm honored to share my pulse. --Tom Teasley
