Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-03-21 
Guitar jazz, and the first album led by Parker, a sideman in the Tortoise/Chicago Underground kinds of bands.

Gentle feel overall, like "normal" guitar jazz with nicely complex writing and soloing and a pleasant atmosphere. Plus a couple of clattery free-improv tracks just to show Parker's not going entirely soft. Not sure this is ground-breaking, but it's very enjoyable, not to mention a treat for those who've been waiting for Parker to strike out on his own.

1- Calm
2*- Uptempo, quiet feel
3- Oddball intro, gentle groove
4- Noisy improv
5- Midtempo; gently creeping theme
6- Mid/fast
7*- Free improv, noisy
8*- Upbeat, mid/fast
9*- Fast and loose, in a stop-start pattern
10- Midtempo
11*- Midtempo jazz walk, very much "regular" jazz, with eerie intro
12- Exotic flute, fast laid-back rhythm
