Joe Locke does not appear on the other tracks of Fantasy CD 9674. The recording date of this track is a mystery. Fantasy 9674 gives recording dates for all performances of either September 26-27, 1993 or December 5, 1995, both in New York City. Locke reports that his first recording with Freddy Cole was the Christmas session of July 1994 above so the 1993 dates are out. He also confirms his presence on the Gerry Gibbs session of December 5, 1995 in California, ruling out that date also for this recording. Mel Martin reports that his alto flute part was overdubbed at a later date.

The tracks that make up this CD were obviously recorded at more than one session and probably in different locations. Details are not provided. The personnel are collective and may be incomplete. Some tracks employ a live string section while others use layers of synthesized strings. A vibraphone is clearly audible on five tracks but may be buried in the busy arrangements on the others. Joe Locke has a very brief solo on track n. He reports that his contributions were overdubbed. The sessions were produced by Richard Perry, Clive Davis and Phil Ramone. The CD was released in October 2003 and presumably the tracks were recorded earlier that year.
