Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-03-15 
Free jazz in a slower, pensive vein. Trio of sax/clarinet, piano, bass. Often quiet. Sometimes gets melodic and lyrical, maybe not in a strictly traditional sense, but in an accessible and lovely way (3,14). For a bit more adventure, try 2,4,6,7.

Gebhard Ullman (sax/clarinet), Art Lande (piano), Chris Dahlgren (bass)

1- UFO clarinet, slow.
2- Slinky spy jazz, almost, but slower.
3- Delicate piano, slow romantic sax
4- Thumb piano? and squeaky percussion.
5- Pensive piano solo, slow.
6- Creeping mid/fast, a nighttime pulse heavy on the bass
7- Mid/fast. Jazzy free stepping
8- Quiet at first, gets into a nice midtempo
9- Bass solo. Slowish, thoughtful
10- Low key, gets into a nice clarinet-led rhythm
11- Perky chugging, fairly quiet
12- Midtempo, kind of pretty, wintry.
13- Solo sax. Part pensive, part smoky jazz. Relaxed and sparse.
14- Sad, pretty sax over slow bass. Jazzy in a moody way.
15- 30 seconds of silence.
16- Solo piano. Midtempo and quite nice, a bit of classical feel.
