Spread the love

Finally, in 2019, we released an entirely new version of our original debut, exactly ten years after its original release. 

In 2017 we took our followers on a quick trip around the world in rhythm

In 2012 we broke into the American ambient jazz market with Analog Universe, which received regular radio play from Renée Blanche at Night Tides and lots of other influential ambient shows

In 2009 we launched our debut album, Monjour, an eclectic mix of instrumentals that won us many new fans around the world and encouraged us to continue.

These pieces were lovingly handcrafted by: 
Cass Anawaty: acoustic and electric guitars, piano solos, various synths and synth programming, otherworldly textural processing. 
Paul Russell: primitive acoustic, bass and electric guitars, various keys, synth, groove and rhythm programming. 
Don Latarski: the awesome Lead Guitar parts on Analog Universe 
Jeff Leonard: some beautifully fluid Bass on too many tracks to list here. You’ll notice him. 
Romy Benton: Prescient Flute (ask us later) 
Charley Langer: Sax on Imaginary Noir 
Benjy Wertheimer: Esraj on A Space in Time 
Peter Hollens: Vocals on A Space in Time 
Dale Bradley: Cello on Deep Sighting and Theme for Imaginary Noir 
Mark Zonder: Drums on Another Worldly Many thanks to everyone who has helped and encouraged since we released Monjour, including: Randy Copus, John Shanahan, Renée Blanche, David Helpling, Michael Hoppé, Bruce Swedien, Ramsees Mechan, Brian Walker, Ed McGlaughlin, Jeff Markham, Dave Pittinger, Howard Givens, Barry Butler, Rod Nattrass, Dennis Jones, the TOP crew and all our friends and fans.

These wonderful noises were made by:
