Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-01-28 
Jamming jazz with lots of percussion, accessible mainstream structure. Percussion is mostly hand drums and the like; the drum kit shows up in just a few places. With sax and trumpet, bass, and occasional electronics.

It's a kind of street-jazz or drum-circle feel that would be right at home in the Bay Area (but the collective is from Philadelphia, led by drummer Kevin Diehl.) More of an urban-jazzy sound than a "world" sound. See also Adam Rudolph, who's big on the lots-of-drums thing. FCC clean.

1- Energetic overlapping drums, dual sax/trumpet solo. Bright.
2- Spare, w/hand drums and street-player sax. "World" vocals during the second half.
3- Robust mid/fast, then an electronics pause(WTF?) followed by a new jam
4- Mid/fast, twisty theme, some cool soloing. Ends w/lotsa drums.
5- Slow guitar w/vocal, kind of a loud folky thing. New-agey ocean waves in the ending just ruin it.
6- Slow theme over fast, chaotic rhythm, into a nice stern groove w/long sax solo.
7- Quiet, atonal electronic humming... then, drums! Not sure it works.
8- Dance-y, digging beat. Kind of "free-Latin" horns. Then group singing and a bit of monologue. Ends w/lotsa drums.
