The debut album from Scotland's contemporary music group Red Note Ensemble, founded by cellist Robert Irvine and including violinist Jacqueline Shave. They are joined on this maiden voyage by prolific internationally acclaimed tabla player Kuljit Bhamra. Together they explore journeys; long, short journeys - going there and coming back. A unique recording of repertoire written/arranged specially for tabla and string trio.

The album features covers of John Mayer's "Prabhanda", "Jhalla" and "Tihai". The Anglo-Indian, Mayer was a pioneer of cross-cultural musical fusions in the '50s and '60s working with jazz saxophonist Joe Harriott amongst many others. The musicians also rework Jacqueline Shave's "Machair to Myrrh", which conjures an ocean trip from the Outer Hebrides to the shores of Morocco. Robert Irvine contributes the cool bitter-sweet longing of "Love Song", which echoes the haunting version of Robert Burns' "Ca' the Yowes", beautifully sung by Stephanie Irvine.

Personnel: Robert Irvine (cello), Jacqueline Shave (violin), Kuljit Bhamra (tabla, percussion, toombi), Clare Finnimore (viola)
