In Their Words: “I love how instrumental music can tell a nuanced story, maybe even a non-linear story. With the right combination of improvising musicians in the same room, sharing and listening, a tune finds its way in a way that reflects who is there, what someone just said, what that brought to mind in the next person, on and on. I love the way a tune becomes a vehicle for improvisers conversing with one another, and how a given performance can be so uniquely specific to one moment, one place, one combination of humans. I think Nikolai’s video perfectly matches that emotional arc. This tune is dedicated to the people who found creative ways to make sure that musicians survived the pandemic.” — Joe K. Walsh
