Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-01-28 
Straight contemporary jazz for large-ish band, with a robust, clean sound. No particular surprises in this mainstream set, and some of it gets over-emotive (i.e. cheesy). But there are some nice touches in the soloing segments. The solos generally impressed me more than the compositions.

1- Slow, somber intro to 2
2- Mid/fast, brisk uptempo horns. Robust, clean sound.
3- Soft, quieter sound
4- Faux-Asian theme, retro sounding. Mid/fast, serious, placid. Finally gets swinging for the solos.
5- Fairly fast, soaring feel, after a slow quiet intro.
6- Mellow midtempo, romantic. Starts slow.
7- Slow
8- Gentle, spare intro to 9.
9- Gentle, lush, cheesy.
10- Slowish snaking theme, into big slow horns.
11- Slow, slow intro, into fairly fast space. Big, buzzy sax solo
12- Slow, w/free-floating sax atop fast chiming piano.
