on piano, saxophonist Óskar Guðjónsson (known for his work with Mezzoforte, Søren Dahl Jeppesen and Skúli Sverrison), guitarist Andrés Thor and bassist Róbert Thórhallsson.

The album is a collection of original music that revolves around three chapters in McLemore's life, or rather the three places he has lived: Virginia, New York and Iceland. The songs are filled with excitement of new beginnings, the melancholy of homesickness, fond memories of friends and family, the joy of cooking and a requiem for the late drummer Paul Motian.

The CD was released on the Reykjavik Jazz Festival, August 28th. It is available from Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, eMusic and CD Baby.
