In these days of deceit, disease, and unease, lose yourself in the musical landscape of "Our Place On The Wheel" – this music reminds one how friendship and trust, listening and responding, as well as the deep emotions conjured up by the artists who serve as signposts for this adventure, can create magic. Listen to the title track below and see if you agree.

"Suite for Max Brown" finds Jeff Parker continuing his creative search, changing the way he puts an album together, paying closer attention to detail and groove. His solos, as well as those by the various participants, move organically out of the mix, none overstaying their welcome or concerned with technical fanciness. This "Suite..." feels like a series of short (with a few notable exceptions) "sound poems" – open your ears let the music in.
