Much has happened to Tomeka Reid, who was already one of jazz's definitive figures in the 21st century, in the 4½ years since her last album by this all-star quintet. Most notably, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2022, one of the most prestigious awards in the creative arts field in the USA. The same year, she also won the DownBeat Critics Poll for miscellaneous instrument (despite many deserving talents emerging on the instrument, the jazz polls don't have cello as a category for recognition).She has also performed and recorded with a large number of musicians including The Art Ensemble of Chicago, The Fire and Water Quintet and Tomas Fujiwara's 7 Poets Trio. The group's previous album, Old New, was a huge seller and topped many 'Year's Best' lists and this new release has long been awaited.
