The quartet's focus is the development of collaborative improvisations from simple thematic material. The performance will feature Haywood's compositions as well as tunes by Ornette Coleman, Willie Nelson and Jimmy Webb, all of which appear on the CD.
"Many tunes here, including originals, are actually quite simple but what this band does is layer them with complexity. Their gift is that rare ability. It's the capacity to draw listeners in and take them on a journey". Leon Gettler, The Age
