"I used to learn about some songs from films. old songs that weren't attached to a genre and handed down as the genre continued its ride. songs that were the pop standards of another time became resurrected to support film scenes and a few got stuck in me. For All We Know is one of them, i saw it in a movie, I felt it and I played it in my imagination for a long time, when the internet arrived I found that song again but not the haunting version I'd known inside my head for so many years. I played the song in a way that matched my memory of feeling. The version on this record does not resemble the origin recording by Abby Lincoln. This version belongs with Marisa and I and everything that's happened in our worlds since we recorded it in 2018.
Wishing Well sounds like an ancient song but in fact was written just a few decades ago. It feels like fragments discovered on old stones that can be rendered into living music again thanks to the open space between its figures. In this way it is a magical song. Marisa and I performed this magic song live at Zebulon LA and This is the recording of That." – tjo
"We knew these were the songs but it took a few iterations to find the right versions, one live from Zebulon culled down from a much longer piece, and the other recorded in Tara's sweet space in Ojai...it's an itinerant project, music grabbed in passing, paths criss-crossing and braiding together, patience and timing... Playing these songs with TJO is a real joy every time." – Marisa Anderson
