After making the group recordings, Fort and producer Manfred Eicher decided that the album needed more solo piano, which resulted in the opener "First Rays" and the closer "Sun." As usual with ECM albums the track sequencing sounds so inevitable that it is hard to believe those tracks weren't part of the plan all along. "Earth Talks" shows the empathy of Fort and Trovesi with a duet, and Schneifer's tom rolls bring in the full rhythm section in dramatic fashion for "Not The Perfect Storm." "It's Your Song" (which is just as lyrical as the title implies) pares the group back to the core trio, with space for a lovely bass solo from Wang. "Jumpin' In" shows a rubato side, its striking theme counterbalanced by turbulent playing. The exploratory group improvisation "Inner Voices" briefly goes into more abstract territory.
Fort's music reflects her many influences: 80s pop, Middle Eastern music, and jazz. Despite her trio's formation in New York City, there is a definite European flavor, further enhanced by Trovesi's rich alto clarinet playing. While generally melodic and reflective, Birdwatching also goes into other areas. She says the album title is concerned with literal bird-watching in nature—but also more generally with "watching, listening, waiting." (Mark Sullivan, Allaboutjazz)
