Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-01-31 
Chattery free improv with combinations of a variety of instruments (see back cover) for lots of different textures from track to track. Abstract stuff, a bit like a classical orchestra goofing off when the teacher's out.

A few tracks break the mold with some composed beats, and they get into some nice grooves (4,7,16).

1- Mysterious tribal clatter. Slow.
2- Strong orchestra-tuning-up aggression. Opens with long tones.
3- Hyper flute-trombone duet
4- An actual beat! Nice mid/slow toe-tapper.
5- Upbeat flute with percussive clatter
6- Somber.
7- Six minutes of quiet, then a busy groove
8- Low-key coolness
9- Slow. Lots of growly horns.
10- Loose clatter
11- Bass drone; high piping sax
12- Busy
13- Eerie, breathy flute sounds
14- Careful sax-trombone duet
15- Eerie, cavernous
16- Nice jungle groove with a steady beat. (2nd half gets weirder.)
17- Quiet bells and tweaky flute
