'Three years in the making, Public Ensemble employs the talents of many Recital allies; a mélange of voices and instruments; violin, viola, cello, contrabass, piano, bass clarinet, tenor saxophone, flute, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, pedal-steel, koto, electronic keyboards (organ, farfisa, harpsichord), percussion, other sounds, tape, & a lamp.

Many of the pieces include recited text; reflections stemming from McCann’s book Pacifics. The narrative is meaningless or meaningful. Produced and arranged by McCann in Los Angeles, CA.'
