Album Review
Reviewed 2006-04-04
Accessible modern Jazz. A talented trio, assembled for this recording, playing Sax/bass-clarinet, bass variants (ashimba, twanger, diddley-bow) and drums (also tabla). Interesting, imaginative and good. Some world music touches (African-like percussion and tabla), but not more than that. I thought that the stronger part of this CD was the bass and percussion.

1. The amplified twanger really gives this piece a melting, sort of rubber bass, touch. Begins slow and with free improv. (a few quiet seconds at the beginning too) and becomes fast and more hectic.
*2. Relaxed, African-feel (marimba-like percussion) with some funky touches.
*3. Great funky bass. Cool.
*4. Slow hypnotic tabla and film-noir Sax.
5. Opens with drums and twanger (I think). Sax joins later with the typical excitement. More free improv in feel.
6. Warm African-like percussion with fast but delicate sax.
*7. Great drums and bass. Sax joins only mid-piece.
8. Fast but delicate.
*9. Begins free-Jazzy and advances toward Funky Rock, with twangs and all.
