The ingredients for Cactus Jam are as follows:
1. In the Canary Islands they make Cactus Jam; I wanted to write something which had a sweet
side but also something rough and prickly.
2. I had just bought a bass clarinet and was excited about playing it.
3. I often get bored with my saxophone sound (it sometimes feels too... jazzy), I've experimented many times over the years with electronic manipulation, and this is a continuation of that development.
4. I love working with Gene and Thad and I had never recorded with them. This seemed like a
perfect opportunity to do so.
