From the band's web site:
Knitting By Twilight was first organized in sound and vision
during the Spring of 1994 by musicians/composers John Orsi
and Michael Watson. Initially, the Collective was percolated
to be a springboard for compositional ideas unsuited in nature
for either player's regular combo. As these things often do, Knitting By Twilight, and its distribution imprint it’s Twilight Time, developed into full fledged concerns all their own. The Collective, then as now, features a cast of revolving characters (including, but not limited to, the rather significant talents of guitarists Manny Silva and Mike Marando) but for John Orsi, who from the start has been in continuous service.
