Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-04-26 
More of old-timer Kalaparush Maurice McIntyre with his working band of sax, *TUBA*, and drums.

Definitely in a jazz vein with lots of free interplay. All three players keep things in the jazz motif, particularly drummer Ravish Momin, who contributes as much energy to the fast tracks as Kalaparush's sax does.

The tuba plays the bass role (duh), often laying down the riff behind Kalaparush's spirited sax solos. Tuba solos are frequent, though, and the straining, squeaking sound of those high tuba notes might get on some people's nerves.

This is nice stuff overall, though. Energetic and upbeat free jazz that doesn't go too crazy in terms of volume or speed. It's good to see Kalaparush keeping this band together.
