Thank you to James Fahey for commissioning this work and supporting the vision.
Extra special thanks to Gerald and Bethany and the Kenwood Academy Jazz Band for their tireless efforts rehearsing the band. Your work is tremendous.
I am eternally grateful to Katie Ernst and Ken Vandermark for giving so much support to the music and the musicians. Your presence is felt.
Theaster Gates, my brother in arms, thank you for designing the set, and making a frame for us to set our work inside.
And to the fiery Bandwagon, Tarus and Nasheet, my brothers for life. Thank you for sharing each and every time we make music together.
