Xylouris White's fourth installment of progressive Cretan lute compositions present the sounds of the lute, George Xylouris' vocals and Jim White's drums in an open, spacious sound-field. With the philosophical bent that suits their music's ancient headwaters, Jim and George are meditating on the life of a traveling musician, Sisyphyan in its repetition, but inspired in an eternal recurrence of themes and techniques that allow them to climb ever-further into their experience as players.
"As George and I travelled around, we found ourselves talking about Sisyphus, condemned to climb that hill with that rock forever. I found it fit in with a long held set of thoughts I'd had, that if one concentrated activity and thought enough on one thing it would expand and be a whole world: that is our job as musicians" - Jim White
