Almost straight jazz with touches of wild cello playing from Fred Lonberg-Holm. Actually, most of the set could be considered "straight," even though it gets pretty wild -- it's bebop-minded work with strong horns, high energy levels, and healthy solos. Here and there, Holm's cello ferocity helps give it an extra edge (2,7).|
1- A bit swingy; a nicely straight mid/fast one
2- Abrasive electric-cello groove, into crisp mid/fast bebop. Lots of energy, nice crashing drums. Strong theme ends it.
3- Slow, thoughtful
4- Chaotic, mildly: the band lunges about, cross-soloing after a short composed line. Quiet start with pizzacatto cello.
5- Chipper, upbeat, midtempo feel. Cool counterpoint interlude in the middle for the horns, then a bit faster for solos.
6- Slower, artsy first half. Jazzier second half, midtempo.
7- Bright midtempo, gets into a vicious jam for the first solo. Peppy and driven.
