Chris Potter was nominated for a Grammy for best instrumental solo on this track. Brackeen's composition is marked by beautifully haunting harmonies that seem just on the verge of resolving, but never quite get there. Potter's solo highlights this subtle feature. He toys with weaving, cascading lines conjoining sections of sequenced motives and gestures that have a striving and longing quality. The melancholy nature of his playing emphasizes the wistful and yearning tone of the composition.
