Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-02-01 
Casual sketches from sax-bass-drums trio. Composed bits with a low-key attitude most of the time. Includes some short tracks, 60-90 seconds long, but I prefer the 3-7 minute ones.

The pieces are in a friendly, European mode, the kind that retains a jazz feel but has sprinklings of classical influence. Solos get into some calmly free-jazz territory. Good stuff overall, and the booklet has a nice in-depth interview with composer/leader Christoph Gallio.

1- Quiet little melody
2*- Mid/fast swirling jam. Starts w/squiggly improv
3- Sparse, quiet
4- Fast, and politely strident
5*- Snappy mid/fast, gets into some skronky wandering
6- Small mechanical toy; slowish
7*- Upbeat midtempo melody
8*- Mildly Caribbean; happy, w/nicely involved solos
9- Playfully sparse. Jumpy.
12- Quiet and slow
13- Tuneful w/jagged interruptions. Mid/fast.

Short blips -- 1, 4, 6, 10, 11
