The title track “Remote Location" is a reference to the drummer's home of seven years, and the homesickness that goes along with being a transplant. The other compositions are named for places and people that inspired him (the closing piece is a tribute to the late Paul Motian

Taken together they paint a picture with amazing variation, yet sewn from the same aesthetic thread.
