Album Review

Reviewed 2003-07-26 
All-acoustic trio (guitar, violin, bass).
Lots of fast solos, usually with one member taking the fore and the others providinga loose, open backdrop. Different personalities at work here ... 1 and 9 are like regular jazz, while 6,7,8 are a chamber-music suite written by Dave Douglas.

1*- Old style swingy with some crazy-fast solos, especially on guitar. Mid/fast, happy.
2*- Strong chamber start, very open feel for rapid abstract soloing
3- Slow beat, mildly Asian feel. Starts with a bass solo.
4- Upbeat, spritely. With a slower abstract interlude in the middle.
5- Placid guitar start, very pretty melody. Yuppie/ECM'ish. Peaceful.
6- Fast pulse, almost like Philip Glass
7- Slow and swirling'
8- Peaceful, classical-sounding
9*- Mid-fast, spritely gypsy jazz
