Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-02-12
Post-bop jazz with a relatively soft feel; should play nicely to mainstream ears. Led by sax and guitar. Grab's sax keeps mostly to a comforting, warm sound. It's really guitarist Flo Stoffner who brings the music over to the edge, turning in some nice solos (usually towards the end) that walk the line without being out of place with the intimate mood -- a calmer Nels Cline.

1- Wandering midtempo, openly lyrical. Energetic guitar solo.
2- Midtempo, a bit romantic. Quiet start.
3- A bit bluesy and swinging. Slowish, with flashes of attitude.
4- Quiet, soft, pretty. Slow guitar solo near the end includes some interesting wanderings.
5- Jaunty and mid/fast.
6- Warm, slow sax solo, then a chiming mid/slow theme.
7- '60s-ish midtempo theme. Grab heats up on sax
8- Contemplative, even when it gets faster near the end. Nice.
