Can’t help but think the theme of this album has been heavily influenced by the birth of Rob Gallagher’s and Valerie Etienne’s baby Jared. It’s about discovering the city, ie life itself, in all its beauty, in all its ugliness. All this sung over excellently woven carpet of jazz. To be welcomed into the the world by your parents like this is the best thing that can happen to a newborn, methinks.
