Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-05-05 
Jaunty free-jazz session with a European quasi-classical air that brings circus music to mind -- they've got tuba instead of bass, and they frequently get into these happy/silly march rhythms. Lots of abstract free-improv segments that get quiet, particularly on the longer tracks. Nice stuff. Instrumental; FCC clean.

1- A mostly mid/fast jumble. Starts soft and includes a strident patch of short pre-written bursts. Kinda fun.
2- A bubbly and upbeat stomping, mid/fast, after five minutes of abstract improv that's often quiet. 12 minutes long, with lots of calm and quiet segments.
3- Quiet, into a growing orchestral swirl. Last few minutes: almost comical, clowny stepping
4- Off-kilter classical. A dissonant midtempo march, then some mid-fast untethered improv that gets a bit quiet.
5- Old-time jazz stomp, shades of New Orleans. Happy.
6- Playful. True to its title, sounds like a circusy Godfather theme. Free-jazzy final segment with drum solo.
7- Tumbing fun, mid/fast. Quieter middle segment.
8- Grunty air noises. Later, gets into the circusy mode a bit.
