Sarah Manning: Shattering The Glass Ceiling
AAJ: Is there anything else you would like to say?
SM: Actually, there's one thing I would like to add. There's one tune on the album that is completely improvised.
AAJ: "Through The Keyhole"?
SM: Yes. That's also something I'll credit to Marc. I didn't know, going into the studio, that we were going to do that. It turned out to be something I'm very proud of. It's like somebody turned the lights off and turned the tape off, and we got a chance to play without knowing we were being recorded. Everything I'd internalized over the past six months finally came to the surface. I was struck by how much I love playing with who I'm playing with, and how they really listen. I think it really comes out in that particular piece.
