It was partially intended as a warm-up for a forthcoming Liberation Music Orchestra album, a process that had been in the works since Sadly, Haden died from post-polio syndrome in before any new LMO tracks could Alfreds Aria From The Opera La Traviata (Ариа На Алфред Из Операта Травиата) - Росини*, Пучини* recorded.
Thankfully, Hadenalong with his wife, Ruth Cameron Hadenand Bley had discussed his desires for how to finish the album prior to his passing. Furthermore, the performance, which included two new arrangements earmarked for the planned album, had been recorded for Belgian public radio. All this meant that an album was possible, and in Bley convened the LMO in a studio to record the new material.
Per Haden 's request, longtime friend and esteemed bassist Steve Swallow was brought in to play his parts. Two of the songs, Bley 's evocative arrangement of Miles Davis ' "Blue in Green" and Haden 's "Song for the Whales," are culled from the live concert and bookend the album.
Opening with a haunting, bowed rubato intro in which Haden mimics whale sounds, "Song for the Whales" shifts gears into a searing, confrontational statement centered on saxophonist Tony Malaby 's furious improvisation. Similarly, "Blue in Green," given a lush, enveloping treatment by Bleyis anchored by trumpeter Michael Rodriguezwhose yearning, vocal-like intensity brings to mind a compelling mix of Miles Davis and original LMO member Don Cherry.
Similarly, Bley 's ruminative title track has the measured pace and sobbing, breath-like flow of a person in mourning. Much of this is due to Bleywhose arranging and spare, harmonic piano skills bridge the recordings and help elevate the album to one of the best in the LMO 's catalog.
