Album Review

Reviewed 2003-03-02
Chill-out electronica rhythm tracks with some jazz riffs and soloing on top. Jazzy sound overall, but the rhythm and repetition are given more importance than the improvising, leaving some tracks stiff and bare. It's a nice sounding mix of music with a breezy vibe, but too often they leave their grooves to stagnate. (#9 in particular, at eight minutes.)

Nice variety of instruments: sax, piano, trumpet, guitar.

1- Fast and happy, but the only improvising is in the electronic effects.
2*- Mid/fast, floaty
3- Happy little tune
4- Slow start, snappy groove later
5*- Slowly rocking, w/'70s-jazz flute lines.
6*- Slow/mid, w/some nice composing
7- Midtempo and loud, with staggered silences. Annoying.
8- '70s summery floating; pleasant and twining
9- Loungy, w/nice languid horns. Goes through multiple long phases, gets tiresome.
10- Quiet piano riff and rumbling staticky noise
