CAROLYN MARK and N.Q. ARBUCKLE are cooperators, consensus builders, confederates and collaborators. Having worked together back in 2005 on the track, “Fireworks,” for another of Carolyn's collective recording projects, Just Married: An Album of Duets, they were not alone in noticing that there was some, for lack of a better word, "magic" there and decided to reunite in 2009 for Let’s Just Stay Here. Joining the team for this outing were some of Arbuckle's favorite co-conspirators (aka his band) including The KESPER Twins, PETER (guitars) and MARK (drums) as well as JOHN DINSMORE (bass, wine glasses, charm), as well as guest CORB LUND (mandolin), LILY FAWN (musical saw), JENNY WHITELEY (harmonies) and MIRANDA MULLHOLLAND (violin). Of the twelve songs, six are originals by Mark, thre are originals by Arbuckle and the remaining three are covers chosen for the important places they occupy in each musician's personal cosmology.
