Between 2006 and 2016, Fred Frith played 80 concerts at New York's unique space for experimental music, The Stone. A selection of his encounters with such powerful and creative personalities as Laurie Anderson, Pauline Oliveros, Sylvie Courvoisier, Evan Parker, Nate Wooley has been combined in this 3-album set comprising 23 fascinating tracks. It is a decade-long adventure in improvisation. The musician Theresa Wong writes: "I was struck by the musicality. What I mean by that is: there's this presence of songs and song forms - the music can be harmonic and melodic, there's noise, there's rhythm, a joyfulness, an exploration, a sensuality of sounds, but always underlining that is a musicality that feels to me like songs."
