Review: On his third album, drummer & composer Mouse presents nine songs that have been inspired by a variety of sources, and is a delight to hear. Despite Mouse’s fun with arrangements and words, the release is serious jazz, It moves and shines with an energy that listeners expect from musicians who love their art – a description that seems an apt one for Mouse.
