Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-10-24 
Jazz with a mainstream sound but a very open-ended approach to soloing. The ideas are similar to an ECM record but the sound has more of a nightclub atmosphere. A calm trio of sax, bass, and drums.

1- Easygoing, with a fast theme. A nice "inside" feel.
2- Small and burbling; lots of freedom. Mid/fast.
3- Calm but not slow, some nice group moments
4- Nice sax ramblings. First half slow.
5- A stumbling swing
6- Soft, slow.
7- Fast
8- A pleasant, easygoing ramble
9- Another nice jam, gets cooking near the end
10- Mid/fast but overall peaceful
