Jo Freya meets the Dutch group Maalstroom at the Musicport Festival in 2008. The collaboration is continuing until today and, in 2010, the musicians decide to record an album in Philip Masure’s studio in Belgium.

Jo has decided to dedicate it to his father who was a native of Glasgow. The disc presents also a beautiful cover photograph by the clarinettist Michel Duijves. The design  is the work of Herman Rienstra  and the other photographs the one of Ineke Oostveen.
