Tuesday Wonderland is a concept album, and was first conceived as a collection of preludes and fugues for a jazz trio. As the music developed in rehearsal, it evolved out of its initial inspiration from J.S. Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier to be a more diverse exploration of various flavors. Here, the trio takes another page from the Bill Evans style, with a murkiness and looseness in their own interpretation.
