East Shore is one of the more extensively orchestrated tracks on the "Rhyme" CD, incorporating steel pans and synthesizers into the arrangement. Paul really adds a great deal to the performance, especially through his wonderful cymbal work - in fact, the earliest compositional ideas which became "East Shore" were based on the intent of using Paul's favorite flat ride cymbal on the project. Craig takes his only solo turn on the CD with a tasteful and melodic statement on fretless bass.
