Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-07-09 
A cross between street jazz (think New Orleans brass) and Latin jazz. Pleasant, friendly and fun, although not as wacky as the song titles might suggest.

Instrumentation consists entirely of horns and Latin percussion -- high energy but very pared down, giving it a field-recording/third-world kind of sound (albeit cleanly recorded in New England). The ensemble is good and tight, but the sound gets monotonous in large doses.

1- Peacefully playful, an early-morning kind of brightness
3- Midtempo minor key, nice beat. Snaky sax solo
4- Happy Carnival piece
6- Fast and busy
7- Fast energy; series of riffs
8- Big and flamboyant; mid/fast
9- Fast melodrama, with piano
10- Dirge
11- Upbeat, mid/fast, with flute
15- Midtempo tango
