This 12-channel multitrack studio session was originally to be a demo recording to showcase the vocal and songwriting talents of Judy Stuart.
It was hoped that Vanguard Records might include it in the early releases of quadra- phonic surround sound recordings that they were pioneering at the time, even though the music was primarily a mix of avant-garde jazz with a non-commercial folk-rock flavor.
Free-form short solo space is sprinkled throughout both pieces by Calo Scott, Burton Greene, Marc Levin and Paul Nash under the conduction of producer Steve Tintweiss.
Judy did not live long enough to see the release of this project. Sadly, she passed alone in her NYC apartment during the post production period in 2018.
