Before embarking on this major tour with David Cross we planned to record all the shows with a view to potentially releasing them digitally. However, once I began reviewing the multi-track files, I was shocked to discover that in many cases both mine and Tony’s parts were missing, leaving us with far less useable material. Nonetheless, this setback inspired a creative approach that led us to produce this special boxed set. Across five themed discs we present the band’s progression throughout the tour using material and preferences that resonated with us.
Disc 1 presents a series of live “deep cuts” from the tour. With the quartet configuration the band‘s improvs transcended to a new plane, and this compilation highlights the spirit of those performances.

Groundbreaking impromptu post-progressive music, 5 stars in DownBeat Mag, considered to be in the sub-genre of "new music". Feat. virtuoso axeman Mark Wingfield, M. Reuter, Yaron Stavi, Asaf Sirkis. Stick Men - MoonJune

This is an excellent album from Markus Reuter, accompanied by Fabio Trentini on Fretless Bass and Asaf Sirkis on acoustic drums recorded live in the studio. The interplay among these musicians is amazing throughout and, for me, this is true "progressive" music, as it charts new territory and leaves behind well-trodden cliches. It's challenging music that rewards a mindful listen. Put it on and listen through the whole album without modern social media distractions and you will see what I mean. Jerry F

Thank you for being temporarily inconvenienced and producing this voluptuous collection. ;)
The beauty and magic that came out of the ugliness of 2020. Artists locked away and confined who were compelled to produce AMAZING WORK that we would have never. heard before. Jonathan Pryor
