Here are Arthur's liner notes from the CD cover:
In this collection I've picked my favorite tracks from
1990-2015, mostly original compositions. My mind gets
constricted if I haven't written music or poetry in
awhile. Some compositions need only to be channeled,
seemingly complete in some other place (This Is What..).
Others are a mixture of processes, digging deep into the
acoustic sound of vibes and marimba in search of
melodies and grooves which are connected to their
organic origins. I clearly remember the many recording
sessions from Holland to Rio, NYC to my home studio.
Every moment is of the present, uniquely singular. For
me it's always the same, whether my album or a United
Airlines commercial: put on the headphones, shutout all
else, hear magic, paint with sound. I'm thankful to all
the musicians and engineers who contributed to this body
of work, and humbled by the opportunity to do what I do.
Many musicians over the years are included on this
album. Here are a few: Bob Mintzer, Glen Velez, Fred
Hersch, Jerome Harris, Vic Juris, Nelson Faria, Harvie
