    The original tracks for the session were initiated by Doug Scharin on drums, percussion and electronics and Fred Erskine on bass, trumpets, keyboards and guitar - fleshed out by Carlo Cennamo on tenor sax and keyboards, Jon Theodore on percussion and keyboards and Sean Meadows on guitar.

    ‘Our Point Of Departure’ was recorded at the National Recording in Washington D.C. and produced by Doug Scharin.
