This album was recorded live at the Lilypad in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 2009 and released in 2010. It brings together two diverse groups of musicians who play Tom's music beautifully. The Drive Quartet features saxophonists Brian McCarthy and Jared Sims; guitarist Ian Macaulay; and drummer Alex Chapman. The Infinite Darkness features guitarist Mike Bernier; pianist Tony Cabral and drummer Alex Chapman.

Both groups approach Tom's music differently, but with equal energy and understanding. The music ranges from groove, to straight ahead, to soundscapes and everything in between. It reminds the listener of the sounds of Wayne Shorter, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Evans, Esjborn Svenssen, The Bad Plus and many others, but has a sound all its own. A must-hear.
