This tune is written as an answer to Reciprocity. The two songs are also related in terms of key relationships. Reciprocity ends on an F suspended chord. That ending is what composers have used for hundreds of years to give a piece an unresolved feeling. Higher Law is in B flat minor so there is a Dominant to Tonic resolution at the end of Reciprocity going into Higher Law. That resolution was intentional.
Higher Law is intended to be a aural palette cleanser, coming after the dense tunes that preceded it. I played guitar and bass on it. Loren McGee does a wonderful rhodes piano solo, YL Douglas on drums and the lovely and talented Marsha Lynn Smith contributes the vocals.
