Liner Notes:

Jonathan and I were walking in Griffith Park when Wayne Peet called to say he had an opening at his recording studio. (Wayne Peet, more than anyone I have ever met, is a musician and an engineer. And is masterful at both.)

So off we went.

Jonathan and I played together many times when I lived in New Zealand, but the last time we played was in Macau, circa nineteen-ninety-something, at the Captain’s Bar of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Jonathan was on tour in China with Ed Ware and Nick van Dyke and I was living in Hong Kong playing in bars and doing gigs with Cantopop stars.

It was really fun to go back into the studio and record after so much time. Just as it happens in spoken conversation with a good friend, we just seemed to pick up where we left off . . .
