Trivia[]

  • Rhapsody in Blue was originally arranged by the band for their 2008 tour, but only recorded for this album. The middle section of the band's 2008 arrangement was inspiration for the middle section of "The Count of Tuscany" off Black Clouds & Silver Linings; also, the standard clarinet introduction was played by Levin on the Chapman Stick.
