Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-01-09 
Brassy band led by trumpeter Ara Anderson (Iron & the Albatross). The music is a good time, with slowish stomping beats and jovial solos with a sense of humor. Light shades of the 1940s and film noir. Hip stuff that even non-jazz fans should enjoy.

1- Mid/slow jolly stomp. Somewhere between crime/noir and cartoons.
2- Midtempo swing, a bit exotic
3- "Superman" slice, with the band playing background
4- Slow cool slide, jazz noir. Takes a while to get going.
5- Soaring ballroom jazz. Bright and fairly fast.
6- Jaunty fun. Lots of phases including a quiet avant-garde breakdowns.
