From "Phoenix" CD Liner Notes:

PHOENIX:  Many legends hint at an inborn urge that calls us, because of and in spite of ourselves, home.  Sometimes the music is faint, other times more clearly heard.  We know when we hear it.  We wonder when it's out of range.  It's been called by different names.  The Hindus call it Shraddha. We cry for its song. While we resist it still….  Unlike music more easily heard, it comes by invitation. Does not invade.  We drift in silence a long time, busily busy, outside ourselves.  Until by unquenchable longing or utter desperation…  Caught inside the mystery, the doubt, fear and inspiration, we find comfort and encouragement, "what if…?"  Heard long enough so, in our hearts, we feel again the call, the truth, validity, of being distinctly human, an authenticity that no machine can voice, that no human need feel ashamed to express nor abdicate the birthright to, in the face of increasing demand for inhuman perfection, for inhuman sterility. A choice. Of mind. And heart. And core to the Frequency Band, in response to genuine try, is the attempt, "Your mistakes cost your nothing, here."  Our mission, to foster, beyond our domain, in music and life, the natural courage to further "make it so."  This recording pays tribute to the essence in each life moved by the call to be free. Shraddha, the soul call of the Phoenix.  Phoenix, the song of the soul set free.
