Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-08-29 
Free-jazz quartet with lots of dynamic group action. Piano and sax keep even the most chaotic pieces rooted in jazz, while the bass and drums often produce a jerky-stacatto non-rhythm.

Overall mood is upbeat and a little playful -- these guys seem like they're having fun. Most tracks slip into a bubbly jam when all four members play; the two 10-minute pieces (6, 11) also provide space for each member to solo unaccompanied. Tracks are consistently good; play them all.

1- Stumbly, halting flow
2- Quiet plinking. Gets louder and dark
3- Percussive popping, a really neat sound.
4- Relatively lyrical sax melody
5- Grooving. Starts with long tones over soft piano-drum patter.
6- Agile unaccompanied solos in succession. Some nice playing here.
7- Fast rumble. Hits a furious peak in the middle.
8- Like 4, a lyrical sax melody
9- Scattered and intense
10- Light and calm, but fairly fast
11- Calm and studious, with energetic solos
12- Fast sparse knots. Playful and a bit goofy.
13- Series of tumbling statements
14- Quiet, thoughtful. High squeaking near the end.
15- Catchy mid/fast riff on prepared piano
