"The word nascent conjures the feeling of arriving, or beginning, but also hints at future potential. That feeling of push and pull gets at the fundamental nature of improvisation - the present is always becoming the past, just as the future arrives, becoming briefly, the present.
Original music written by Caldwell-Mason, jazz standards, Bulgarian folk music, as well as haunting renditions of Nick Drake and Brian Wilson songs, are woven into a cohesive musical tapestry, emphasizing the importance of simplicity, motivic development, and expressiveness. David's longtime trio is joined by guest saxophonist Jeremy Powell on two songs."
