The title track “Music for a Free World” is an older melody reprised for this record. The rest of this session is collectively improvised except the last track “Bill” which is a song for the memory of the wonderful guitarist/composer and friend Bill Horvitz who was a tremendous help to me in the early years of his great musical adventure.
