With a freewheeling sense of joy elicited by Paul Lieberman's delightful flute work, backed initially by the lone basslines of Wadopian, this Paul Sullivan composition has a light, infectious air of fun. In its exuberance and flow, the song evokes a happy, more carefree time. Sullivan and crew seem most at ease with uplifting tunes. This one suggests a soundtrack for a movie where the main character dances through a park after meeting the girl of his dreams. Such a sense of idyllic abandon is not a bad feeling to evoke in music.
