About

"While trying to write new music for The Lost Chords, I kept hearing a trumpet. It wasn't the usual trumpet sound I hear when I write for Big Band. It was elegant and eloquent. Earthy yet ethereal. Suddenly I could hear this beautiful sound leaking out of Andy Sheppard’s headphones. I realized it was Paolo Fresu." – Carla Bley

Carla Bley did the obvious thing, inviting the Italian trumpeter to join her group for a recording at Gérard de Haro’s Studios La Buisonne near Avignon, and on the European tour to mark its release.
