Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-01-19 
A jazz jam over various rhythms of the world, led by Cole on Asian double-reed instruments. Big and joyous, danceable, with loads of energy. Except for 3 and 9, all tracks improvised over preselected rhythms. Fun stuff!

1- Spoken introduction (it's a live recording)
2- Low buzzes and squawks

3*- Korean melody in three overlaid parts, written by drummer Warren Smith while he was living over there. Lovely and patient.

4*, 6, 7* - Strong rhythmic jams. Lots of percussion, including a solo on 7, and lots of blazing horns.

5- A milder jam; a good relaxing break

8* - Quiet solo by Cooper-Moore on the homemade "hoe-handled harp," which really does sound like a harp. Peaceful.

9**- Big slow blues jam, ferocious! But it shuts down for a long quiet drum solo near the end.
