Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2002-08-08 
These guys are great. Sax-bass-drums trio with lots of energy and lots of youthful loudness. Compositions start with recognizable jazz elements and often a klezmer touch, but from there they add high-energy outside soloing and the occasional spasm of electronics.

They develop grooves that hold a fast, tight pace, but they also show off a slower, moodier side on tracks like #3 or the intro to #2.

A lot of their energy is better conveyed live than on CD. You can capture some of that live spirit by being sure to play this one loud!
