Dan Fortin, the bassist of the Canadian jazz group Myriad3, and vibist Michael Davidson have combined forces here in an album of quiet, almost sub-toned dimensions, a program of very intimate, almost subliminal music-making. The CD is a collection of 14 pieces that can be enjoyed separately or as a continuous suite. The musical themes recur throughout, creating (purposely) a feeling of déjà vu
