These songs are the fruits of an impromptu session that reunited the members of the Indalo Wind Trio - father and son, Eric and Jacob Walter, and longtime friend and collaborator, Steve Cleveland. The tracks were recorded live and unrehearsed in Dirt Angel Studios, Tigard, Oregon, on July 23, 2019.

"Wild Bill Jones" is a traditional song that Eric has been singing for many years. We play it here in a minor key, wandering freely along the road less traveled.

"Backsliding" is based on a bluegrass instrumental, "Backstepping", written by Eric almost 20 years ago. Always a favorite in the band's live shows, it was often played as an encore. This spur-of-the-moment excursion takes some different turns.

"Flake of the Wood" just came out of nowhere.

Thanks to Iggy.

Love to Nikki.
