Lars Hidde played the tune Vasona Park" with Michael Manring (Windham Hill's original bassist) and Jeff Oster (produced by Will Ackerman) on several occasions live around the Bay Area. Originally written as a live performance piece, Vasona Park" developed as a production of independent studio recordings and live performances that were captured from the shows they did together. Michael Manring's ebow bass, played live on stage at one of these performances, sits perfectly in the mix of this studio production along with Kiki St. John's vocals. Jeff Oster recorded the flugelhorn parts in Lars' studio where Lars captured the beautiful warmth of the sound right into Ableton Live.
