Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-04-20 
Straight jazz quartet with a hip bop/post-bop sound that adds occasional electronics and samples. Nice idea, not always well done -- sometimes it's just gratuitous and distracting (like track 1 or the start of 4) but often rather good (8, 12).

1- Monk tune w/messed-up Monk samples all over. Distracting and gratuitous; nice idea on paper, but leaves me cold
2- Calm tones over hyper, electronica-inspired drum
3- Loping and, well, lazy, with a touch of funk. Cool echoey 'bone solo.
4- Really fast bop walk
5- Bluesy wailing sax over wistful chords. Long slow-toned intro.
6- Slowly warbly Duke Ellington cover. Nice bass solo opens.
7- Playful take on "Mood Indigo," fairly fast but sparse at first
8- Slow forest of electronics; experimental, sparse, and floaty.
9- Cooly funky midtempo, builds some nice intensity
10- Mid/fast, a cool, low-key romp
11- Slow, atmospheric, w/echoey horn. Mid/fast sax solo later
12- Floaty, disjoint Sun Ra tribute w/lots of little surprises like piano samples and a goofy singing troupe: "Sun Ra. And his band. From outer space. Will entertain you now." Cool!
