An excellent altoist and soprano-saxophonist, Brandon Fields mostly plays commercial music on this set. On "Studio Cafe Blues," he shows what he can do in a creative jazz context, but otherwise the music is rather mundane, with long melody statements, unimaginative rhythms, and a great deal of safe playing; this version of John Coltrane's "Equinox" is a misfire.

Malotte's famous setting of The Lord's Prayer is also included. The title of the CD is taken from Samuel Barber's beautiful setting of James Agee (the poet of Knoxville, Summer of 1924).
