This is a project that began in 2000. "What started as "an all acoustic world music kind of thing" with Steve and friends has resulted in a collection of instrumental hybrids mixing world, jazz, blue/newgrass, rock, country and blues. What I like most about the record is its spirit of fun, experimentation and cameraderie that runs from beginning to end; instruments range from piano-bass-guitar to oddities like the digeridoo, claves, seashells, whirlies, vinyl siding, tail pipe, flower pots, a salad bowl, and yes - a kitchen sink." Michael Westerfield,

The bonus track, "The Shaw Shuffle" was an impromptu jam that emerged at the end of a grueling session and illustrates the fun we can have when we let loose. All songs were recorded and mixed "on the fly", the old-fashioned way, without the use of computer-aided editing or automation.
