With this new release, the Swiss 'hatOLOGY' record label serves up six pieces culled form a live 1995 performance, featuring the trio's permutations of microtonal passages, call and response techniques, and unorthodox harmonic fabrications. On the 26-minute opener, "Some And Then Some," tenor saxophonist Joe Maneri renders an amalgamation of half-tones and abstract, blues-based lines along with emotive howls and shrieks, as violinist Mat Maneri and guitarist Joe Morris engage in circular, three-way dialogue atop a bevy of intertwining textures.

The musicians' animated approach and spurious interplay is akin to some sort of domino effect, where the respective soloist's trigger responses from one another. Throughout, the trio expounds upon an abundance of emotionally driven mini-themes, consisting of Morris' articulately executed, fluttering single note lines, Mat Maneri's interrogation of all sonic registers and the band's overall propensity to pursue verbose dialogue amid various odd-metered rhythmic foundations. Hence, the music portrayed here often elicits notions of three scientists delving into a complex mathematical formula.
