Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-07-30 
Modern mainstream jazz led by two violins -- Zach Brock and Tom Wright -- for an interestingly proggy sound. Lots of fun, showy solos although it's not as brash or "rockin'" as Zach Brock's recent CD, which is probably a good thing.

For a similar one-violin excursion, dig up the Chromatic Persuaders CD in the library.

1- Mid/fast, breezy, some nice thick violin passages & good piano
2- Mellow, a bit slow. Comforting autumn music.
3- Fast! Quick-stepping theme and a trading-fours solo
4- Loping mid/fast, kind of bluesy
5- Mid/fast, with tangly fluttery theme
6- Slowish but powerful. Takes a while to get going.
7- Cheery mid/fast
8- The "outside" track, it digs and scratches. Starts easy.
9- Slow Beatles/Indian cover, a bit spacey w/firey soloing.
