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 \r\ndecided the group was long overdue for the opportunity to once again present its \r\nwork in a concert hall. (The school, you see, is actually an old house; the \r\nEnsemble presenting its work in the living room".) So, he booked a hall on a \r\nlocal college campus for "Two Evenings of Improvised Music", wherein Milo Fine \r\nand Steve Gnitka, the nucleus of the Ensemble, collaborated with four of their \r\nmost stalwart associates -- Scott Newell, John OBrien, Elliot Fine and Jason \r\nS. Shapiro -- in trio and quartet formats. He also made arrangements for the \r\nevent to be recorded. Thus, this triple CD features the vast majority of the \r\nmusic played during those two evenings." - Shih Shih Wu Ai.\r\nMilo Fine: piano, drums, marimba/electronics, clarinet, clarinet/electronics, alto clarinet, bowed cymbals; Steve Gnitka: guitar; Scott Newell: tenor sax, wood flutes, "paper"; John OBrien: trumpet, flugelhorn; Elliot Fine: percussion; Jason Shapiro: piano, synthesizer.
