This ambitious album epitomizes a working relationship that Rova began with Morris in 1988, while also reflecting parallel working methods reaching back to the mid-1970s. Building on previous efforts in this milieu, the saxophone quartet joins forces with an acoustic string quartet and an amplified power trio, expanding its tonal color palette in the process.

The program represents a working relationship that Rova began with Morris in 1988 and also reflects parallel working processes reaching back to the mid-1970s. Rova do more than simply pay tribute.
Both Rova and Butch Morris have their roots in California free jazz. Bruce Ackley recalls Morris living in the Bay Area on and off in the 1970s: Around ’76 or ’77, Butch came nearly nightly to just listen at the space our group of improvisers ran, the Blue Dolphin, located in the San Francisco Castro District at that time. That’s when I rst met him and started talking with him about music. 1. Nothing Stopped, But A Future (for Buckminster Fuller) (Ochs).
