Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-03-31 
Accessible jazz in the cooled-down "West Coast" style. It's got some offbeat ideas in the composing, but when they get into the solos, you're transported to a 1950s big-city jazz club. Led by trumpeter McNeil, with baritone sax, bass, drums. The baritone sax gives it a burly feel, but the sound can be pretty too, on the slower tracks.

1- Burly, a bit suspenseful, mid/fast with pauses.
2- Easygoing, mellow
3- Midtempo, easy. Warm retro sound
4- Rapid
5- Duet of vibrating sounds, kinda out-there
6- Soft swing and fast-patter bop, w/untethered improv middle
7- Slow, gentle
8- Midtempo pulsing theme, into cool trade-off solos
9- Spare duet improv, pleasantly popping melody
10- Calm, not that slow, w/cool swaying theme
11- Mid/fast but calm energy, a touch of chamber jazz
12- Bright midtempo, with hand drums and a bass solo
