A jazz guitar great who emerged from an art-jazz space Mary Halvorson features the iconic Robert Wyatt in addition to 'The Lemon Trees' on two more tracks from this soon to be released Code Girl album Artlessly Falling. Halvorson has already paid tribute to the widely adored Soft Machine and Matching Mole legend on an earlier album Illusionary Sea arranging the Wyatt/Catherine classic, 'Maryan'. This goes one step further with the presence of Wyatt himself. 'The Lemon Trees' lyric is colour laden and finds Wyatt conjuring ''indolent visions'' his unmistakable voice embellished gently by seraphic backing. Excellent trumpet on the track by Adam O'Farrill by the way, the track allows a lot of room for an open sense of improvisation that Code Girl imaginatively explore.
