all compositions by peter van huffel except good mornings by jesse stacken
"pianist jesse stacken, who comes to nyc by way of minnesota, is adept in his role as both the trigger for and connection between these mood shifts. such is the case on "delirium", where he intricately combines with dubois to lay down a frenetic rhyhtm, allowing van huffel to blow bop, and then artfully picks up the leader's subtle cue to set a pensive mood. his "good mornings" is the albums most touching moment and the vehicle for van huffel's most tender tone."
