Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-01-03 
Bebop jazz, straightforward stuff. Many tracks (2,4,12) carry a mildly Klezmer feel, or is it Mexican horns? The band is characterized strongly by the trumpet sound, bright and forceful.

Relatively short songs (7 minutes max). Mostly in a conservative vein, except for the weirdness of tracks 3 and 11.

1- Fast twisty bebop
2- Slowish; Mexican feel to the horns
3- Quick and perky
4- Gentle midtempo
5*- Fast straight bop
6- Slow
7- Midtempo; mellow, warm, chintzy
8*- Mid/slow, with bright trumpet solo
9*- Fast, tumbling, madcap
10- Quiet little shuffle
11- Sparse, quiet, improv. Some quiet gentle vocals.
12- Dreamy-slow. Very melodic solos, appropriate to a closing track
