AllMusic Review by

In the collection Arraymusic: New World. A charming ensemble composition built on waves of motoric pulses and tones which rise and fall back into a center in a kind of cresting motion. "The title is...that of a passenger ship, one of Canadian Pacific's 'White Empresses' which served on that line's Vancouver-Yokohama-Shanghai run until 1939" (Butterfield). (See also Butterfield's Flamingo Limo in the collection Strange Companions).
