in 1998, after attending close to every one of the ensembles bimonthly concerts at the west bank school of music for well over a decade, michael mann decided the group was long overdue for the opportunity to once again present its work in a concert hall. (the school, you see, is actually an old house; the ensemble presenting its work in the "living room".) so, he booked a hall on a local college campus for "two evenings of improvised music", wherein milo fine and steve gnitka, the nucleus of the ensemble, collaborated with four of their most stalwart associates -- scott newell, john obrien, elliot fine and jason s. shapiro -- in trio and quartet formats. he also made arrangements for the event to be recorded. thus, this triple cd features the vast majority of the music played during those two evenings.
