Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-04-16 
Between post-bop and free jazz, sticking to the jazz camp but without many boundaries. Tracks vary between post-bop compositions and heavily free material.

Fonda and Stevens play bass and piano. The lead voice is Herb Robertson's trumpet, which provides plenty of deft twirling. There's no other horn -- no saxophone, specifically -- which seems to open up- the space quite a bit. Very enjoyable and often relaxing.

1- Slow, relaxed, and pretty
2- The avant-garde track, restrained and popping
3- Mid/fast minor key, very '60s vein of post-bop
4- Quiet, slow, with serious piano
5- Percolating, fairly fast but quiet, w/"human beat-box"
6- Dusky minor-key piano jazz, retro '60s feel
7- Brash and a bit funky, with some poetry
