Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-04-06 
Modern classical sounding stuff from an L.A. percussionist. Percussion heavy, of course (lots of tuned stuff like marimba) with some oboe, clarinet, and cello for added melody, and even more of a classical vibe. Kind of a relaxed feel.

1- Cartoony sound, chirpy, angular.
2- Lurking chamber feel, mid/fast but swampy. Cool.
3- Careful midtempo w/classical sounding melody
4- Slow wandering, into a nice drum patter about 6 minutes in, then a rather active third act.
5- Cool overlapping riffs; mid/fast but calm
6- Kind of a "world" drumbeat intro, into mid/fast classical lines. Second half: looser feel, with marimba.
7- Playfully gloomy. Lightly mid/fast later.
8- Mid/fast, a bubbly calm tempo fed by vibraphone
