Notes on this track from Dave Douglas:

"I’ve discovered in the course of recording and performing Metamorphosis that I love playing with Wadada Leo Smith. The interaction is profound and instantaneous. Here he plays mostly open horn and I play half harmon muted. We are both sonically and intervallically interweaving with Yasushi’s bowed bass and Matt Mitchell’s modular synthesizer. There are moments where the shape of the constellation Delphinus are clearly apparent. There is also the humor of this dolphin coming to save the day, only to dive back into the deep. This was a truly enjoyable quartet to play in."

Personnel:
Dave Douglas, trumpet
Wadada Leo Smith, trumpet
Matt Mitchell, modular synth
