("The music of "...theoretically" was first released in a limited edition by Empire Records.")

I'd met Tim [in NY], but it was while I was in Europe playing with Paul [Motian] at a festival... that we got to know each other. We started talking and got along, so we got together.One of the first times turned out to be ... "....theoretically". Tim had a friend who had studio time, so we went over there and messed around. It's really a mix of free and written stuff. (Guitar World, May 1989)
