A Note From Trent Gardner:

Hello Everyone,

Over the past few years I have been a very fortunate musician. This album contains yet another 'musical experiment' made possible by the patience and intestinal fortitude of Pete Morticelli & Mike Varney. I can't think of anything more challenging yet rewarding for a writer and producer. I anticipate more of these unlikely experiments.With the "Raising The Mammoth" player line-up, I have rediscovered how many endless combinations of 'those mysterious 12 notes' are still left -and more importantly, how many I still don't Any cliche about needing more time will do. Prog on.
