"I wanted to make a real jazz-improvising statement in a live situation with two of my favorite musicians," Scofield says. "It's really challenging. You don't rely on arrangements as much as on the way the group plays together. You don't rely on anything other than good playing, and you know there's no lifejacket or safety net involved. That doesn't happen as often in a studio setting: I think the big difference is the audience. There is a symbiotic affinity between the artists and the audience that makes for something special."
