Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-02-17 
Abstract improvising led by Tsahar's sax, backed by a few stringed instruments. Comes across as a kind of avant-classical, but also displays the kind of free-jazz improv you'd expect from a sax-led group. Tracks 1 and 9 use the strings to particuarly good effect, and tracks like 7 get a stark emotion from them.

1- Slow sheen of saxophone and strings, a cinematic crawl
2- Clicky percussion, slow country fiddle. Later, groany abstract improv that gets fast and skittery near the end
3- Brash, mid/fast. Nice gutteral sax, bright.
4- Quiet ominous buzz, into long mournful tones
5- Slow and low (faux didjeridoo), gets groany and aggressive
6- Eerie small noises. Last 40 seconds VERY quiet.
7- Fast improv jumble, starts quiet and loudens up. Stark feel.
8- Tumbling ball of improv, fast and fun.
9- Slow. Long, searching sax tones. (Duke Ellington song)
