Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-08-30 
Soulful, relaxed free-jazz grooves from a sax-bass-drums trio. Nice jams based on easygoing composed riffs that lead into open-minded soloing and the occasional freak-out.

Well conceived stuff from Chicago; drummer Tim Daisy is a member of the Vandermark 5.

1- Easy groove, midtempo and relaxed.
2- A bit more complex; gets into group improv that gets fierce and even psychedelic
3- Midtempo rambling groove. Opens with bass showcase
4- Shuffle beat. Starts calm, gets simmering
5- Calm midtempo
6- Restrained free-jazz whirlpool
7- Slow, wistful
