Peter Johannesson and Max Schultz, both self-taught musicians, started playing together in the mid 1980s when they toured with Herbie Hancock. Around this time Peter and Max performed a succession of concerts with another pianist, Bobo Stenson, who had been an idol of their youth. As they performed together they decided to record an album. Over the course of a couple of years they produced a series of new compositions from which they made a careful selection for the album. This was recorded in 2008 and has resulted in the present CD.
