This album was pivotal in helping me find the true underlying joy in the act of creating again. That photo is of me when i was 3, I would run around the house with a record on my head singing "we all live in a lellow submarine". I suppose in some way this album was an attempt to return to that same performance, but using the tools that i'd acquired in the intervening 24 years. All of the piano playing was entirely improvised without any forethought, just pure expression, and then layers of accompaniment were added to further bring out the ideas indicated in the playing.
