Brilliant local jazz, with Sandy Evans, Craig Scott, Alan Turnbull & Jim Piesse.
'Here is something unusual in improvised music: five musicians recorded in various duo combinations in two separate sessions, the latter used as a binding thread for all the other vignettes...The results can be surprising. On top of that, he has woven the sessions around each other in a structure that makes compelling listening. He's also been able to pick the highlights of the improvised sessions and make the best use of them. The performances are dazzling, perhaps most in the interplay between McNamara and the drums, a tag match on a precipice. Exhilarating' Shane Nichols AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL REVIEW
'I didn't think they made records like this any more...McNamara's architectural approach surfaces in the way he defines shapes, and searches out motifs and patterns, however free and sometimes agitated the music is...Fascinating' John Shand SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
