This Dave Douglas composition is built on relatively simple harmonic and rhythmic material because like most of Douglas's pieces, its mood is central. During his stint in Douglas's group, Chris Potter demonstrated his imaginative improvisational approach in a setting that allowed more freedom than traditional jazz. His solo on this track consists of menacing gestures that frequently scream into the altissimo register of the tenor saxophone.
