"If you work with great musicians, you get great results," Cutshall said. "I feel very fortunate to be able to do this."

Linear Notes:

Scott did the „RIGHT THING “!! He let the musicians just play – no words, no directions, no attitude – just make music. The result is three and four musicians talking DIRECTLY with each other, rather than a specific piece of music acting as the subject of discussion. In other words, no intermediary „thing “ as a reference point. All each of us had was the moment and the other people playing. After all, isn't that the point of improvisation? 
However, when there was a piece of music, what could be lovelier than one of the most simple diatonic, melodic/harmonic combinations ever written by one of the most sophisticated and complex musicians who ever lived? ... - ... John Coltrane’s prayer – „Dear Lord “ .
