Track Review: 1/ drums start> instruments join in like a conversation which gets more involved as the track progresses 2/ spacey piano starts> sax takes us off into the universe> off-kilter sax solo> fade 3/ flute starts uptempo - kind of like a flock of birds flitting about> quick stop 4/ sax starts in slow bursts> a new conversation springs up with the other instruments and moves into an uptempo off-kilter jam> quick stop 5/ sax starts> melodies shift> gorgeous interplay between musicians> quick stop 6/ flute starts slow like a soundtrack of watching cranes in flight 7/ drum solo starts> uptempo jam> quick stop 8/ sax starts> slow tempo song builds to midtempo> sax solo> evocative female vocal> slow fade 9/ piano solo starts> slow tempo gorgeous melody like a stroll through misty countryside> plaintive sax solo> slow fade 10/ flute starts> beautiful melody midtempo, reminiscent of biking along a creek (short tune) 11/ sax starts> uptempo jam> a new conversation amongst instruments> melody shift> quick stop
