Of all the tracks on my "Rhyme" CD, this one has grown on me the most since the recording sessions. Originally, it was included as an afterthought to fill out the disc - perhaps that "laissez-faire" attitude contributed to the looseness of this performance, which was recorded in one take. We opened up the ending section, with the idea of fading out when doing the mixdown of the tune, but we ended up using the entire track.
