Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-02-23 
Marco Eneidi, Bay Area free-jazz hero, here with bassist Lisle Ellis and drummer Peter Valsamis. The three had toured under the name "Sound On Survival" and paused in NY to record this gem.

Relaxed and bluesy! Eneidi is known for fast "energy" jazz (6,8,9,12), but on some tracks they made a conscious decision here to stick to blues forms and ideas, for a slower and more casual air (1,3,4) They're still freely improvised but with tangible grounding in blues scales and ideas. Great session overall.

1- A slow, summer-porch blues
2- Energetic. Starts slow but gets crazy.
3- Quiet jam
4- Sneaky blues riff
5- Fast; a nice short number
6- Starts coolly, gets into frenzied free sax
7- Fast
8- Very fast, after staggered start
9- Fast tumble
10- Calm and fast-rolling. Searing middle.
11- Somber bowed-bass solo, then a short slow blues
12- Fast and frenzied
