Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-01-12 

Saxophonist Ware adds violin, viola and synthesizer to his band for a big, cinematic sound. Showcases texture and atmosphere more than the aggressive sax sounds he's known for (although his axe gets its say on 3 and 6). Moody stuff, big and ambitious, and an interesting new direction for him.

1- Slow, swirling, mournful
2*- Midtempo and grand, with the richness of the jazz tradition
3- Mid/fast sax w/jumbly percussion, almost Caribbean
4- Strings only: sad, slow
5- Mellow and almost (gasp) new age, a swirling pleasant atmosphere
6*- Sax-percussion duo, more aggressive than track 3
