Recorded on and off over the past three years in a variety of locations including Trey’s famed Barn recording studio in Vermont and co-producer Bryce Googin’s (Phish, Pavement) Trout Studios in Brooklyn, NY. Joining Trey in the studio include members of Phish, string arranger Don Hart, longtime collaborator John Medeski, the Benevento/Russo Duo, singers Carmen Keegan (I Nine) and Joan Wasser (Dambuilders, Joan As Police Woman), Todd Sickafoose (Ani Difranco), Ben Perowsky (Walter Becker, John Scofield) and Stephen Bernstein (Sex Mob).
Beginning with the familiar sound of Mike Gordon’s bass work on the dynamic opening track “Host Across the Potomac”, Trey touches on Stones Exile-era riffing (“Dragonfly” and “Mud City”) and thrilling guitar solos on the title track and “What’s Done”, as well as the structured-improv crowd favorite “Goodbye Head” and the expanded instrumentation of “Cincinnati”.
