Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-01-11 
Free jazz played out in slow, patient strides. Most tracks have a nice groove/riff base to them, with a meditative atmosphere to them. Great stuff.

1- Gentle flowing groove w/ bright trumpet exclamations.
2- Very slow, gentle
3- Mid/slow groove w/sparkly piano solo
4- Sparse and playful, no drums, featuring scattery piano-trumpet duet
5- Simple, attractive groove ("So What" inside-out).
6- Very nice 14-minute suite in three movements. Slow intro, then grand sweeping passage. Last 5 mins are an upbeat midtempo groove.
