Three brilliant improvisers join Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem in this album, recorded in New York in May 2017. For Brahem and Dave Holland the album marks a reunion: they first collaborated 20 years ago on the very widely-acclaimed Thimar album, a trio recording with John Surman. Brahem meets Jack DeJohnette for the first time here, but Holland and DeJohnette have, of course, been frequent musical partners over the last half-century, beginning with ground-breaking work with Miles Davis: their collaborations are legendary. British pianist Django Bates also rises superbly to the challenge of Brahem’s compositions. And Anouar in turn is inspired to some of his most outgoing playing.

In those times when people do not always realize the value of Europe and of 70 years of peace, Honing tells a binding story. During his research into the history of Europe, he chose Germany as a symbol of Europe. Because of their many good writers, philosophers, composers and painters. And because of its resilience and the leadership role they now take in Europe. He attributes to more proudness of among Europeans of the cultural DNA of our their continent.
