Simultaneous to having achieved a great measure of deserved acclaim for his ascendant work on upright bass [see Wildlife, just posted here] during the year which preceded this recording, Joe Morris kept his incomparable & singular voice on the guitar in highly notable flex mode: on David S. Ware's Shakti; the William Parker Orchestra's Double Sunrise Over Neptune; a 4xCD set of improvised duos with Anthony Braxton, for example..

Here the master brings guitar full fore once again with a blessed Quartet on a brand new set of indelibly melodic tunes that are rendered with deep swing and profound essence. Joining him in doing so are Jim Hobbs & Timo Shanko [both of The Fully Celebrated; do check their recently posted album up here] and likewise long-time associate, Luther Gray [who also features on Wildlife].

From the liner notes by Joe Morris:
"I call what I play Free Music because I want to be free to render my work in any way I feel necessary to express my feelings and ideas. My colleagues here are as strong and expressive as any players ever when it comes to dealing with this kind of material. I’m lucky to be able to work with them. The title of this recording suggests the idea that is at the core of my artistic goals; a reminder to have a simple instant of realization, a second of reflection about our lives standing on this planet floating in the universe."
