Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-08-14 
Likeable mainstream jazz, light and intelligent. Not groundbreaking but not slavish to familiar song formats, either. Quirky composing with some wacky time signatures (3,5,6,8). Sax and light-footed jazz guitar take the lead. Some nice creativity in a package that's an easy listen.

1- Perky, mid/fast. Quirky, with familiar setting for solos
2- Mid/fast theme with mildly "world" feel. A bit retro-exotic?
3- Slinky fast guitar/bass theme, happy & complex
4- Casual and happy. Bluesy bassline.
5- Slow w/prog feel. Lots of wandering.
6- Bluesy strut in 5/4 time
7- Slow and soft, nice guitar solo intro. Heats up later.
8- Complex time sig, coolly popping theme
9- Cool guitar jazz, a bit bluesy. Wandering sax solo
10- Jaunty, easygoing, a bit mellow
