Album Notes
"Roy Patterson is undoubtedly one of Canada's leading guitarists, a perfectionist with a big, dominating sound that turns every tune he plays into a stimulating experience". -the Toronto Star

"..Every note that he plays seems to have a purpose and a place, and both purpose and place usually have something to do with melody". -the Globe and Mail

This beautifully recorded CD captures the Roy Patterson Quartet at its peak, one year before winning first prize at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. The compositions, all Patterson originals except for one from pianist Brian Dickinson, reflect a modern sensibility without losing the power of communication. From the ECM-like ballad, First Elegy, to the up tempo energy of Opening Day and The Coming Of Angels, the quartet's flawless performance conveys an emotional depth rarely captured in the studio. The title refers to the belief that people often come into our lives for reasons unknown to us, but affect profound changes in the directions we take and decisions we make.
