Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-10-05 
A country/jazz/blues hybrid, a lot like Lyle Lovett's more recent stuff. Borrows especially from ragtime and showtune jazz, with Wamble adding strong vocals to most tracks. Lighthearted and likeable. Generous time alotted for the band's solos, which are often really good (see 4 especially)

1- Big grand gospel intro to #2
2*- Cool, thumpy, a bit funky. Stormy bop jazz with big chords.
3- Midtempo; old, bluesy and Southerny
4*- Slow bluesy country feel; great piano and violin solos
5- Cool crystal bop feel; nightclub jazz with a fiddle
6*-Bebop, nice twisty theme
7- Sparse Delta blues feel: solo voice and guitar
8- Slow and bluesy
9*- Cover of a Police song! Slow w/ wacky sax intro. Dig the click-clap "we will rock you" segment.
10- Gently gospel feel.
