Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-07-26 
Free jazz/improv orchestra conducted by Tsahar, this time using some composed material, apparently. Jazzy sound overall -- the band gravitates toward conventional bebop forms, usually topped by some free-wheeling solos. Nice stuff.

1- Very quiet start with single-note horn blares. Breaks into free jazzy soloing by Tsahar after about -4:00
2- Almost industrial chugging; brash trombone
3*- Cute perky theme; mid/fast and energetic
4*- Cuts in on a fast scattery piano solo, burly sax joins in later
5- Lumbering unison horn lines over rustly background. Some interesting soloing
6- Dark, loud and slow. Quiet start.
7*- Normal bebop! Cool little trumpet solo. Starts with drum solo.
8- Fast sax solo over slow horn progressions. Second part is slower.
9*- Slow swing with some wild soloing
10- Slow grand finale, Tsahar hits some great high notes on tenor sax
