Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-03-21 
Somewhere between jazz, prog, and chamber music, with vibraphone and accordion for a softly sophisticated sound. Lots of NYC ringers in the band: Chris Speed (sax) and Drew Gress (bass) in particular. Really good if you're looking for something melodic and easy on the ears; this would be nice music for an art-gallery opening, for example.

See also the "Claudia Quintet" album filed under "Hollenbeck, John."

1*- Gentle fast chiming; gets jazzy for the last couple minutes
2- Fast chuggy rhythm, playful.
3*- Mid/fast, gently popping. Fierce vibes solo later
4- Mid/fast but slow feel, mellow
5*- Tangly; settles into a mildly menacing groove
6- Long, slow tones. Slow funk groove at end
7*- Fast, a nice groove
8- Dirge: slowish and sour.
