A musical 'gathering' of sophisticated and smooth jazz arrangements featuring traditional Gaelic and Scottish songs and airs.

Composer and pianist Stephen J. Wood has drawn his inspiration from live traditional musicians, infusing his unique twist of Third Stream jazz and contemporary classical styles.
