Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-08-18 
Jazz with electronica; not quite "nu jazz." Butch Morris brings his "conducted improvisation" to the rigid rhythms of dance music. Lots of samples, scratches, and electronic gizmo sounds populate the field; a jazz tilt is added by saxes, trumpet, and sometimes guitar. Overall accessible, lacking the abstract feel of Morris' usual conductions; for a cool effect, he sometimes moves the horns in a rhythm unconnected to the electronics (6,8). Mostly instrumental; no FCCs.

1- Mid/fast, swampy, a heavy dub-like beat, some loping jazz horns
2- A calm feel, with wandering horns
3- Mechanically mid/fast, w/female vocal. Guitar solo and synths get disturbingly smooth-jazzy.
4- Serene floating, w/ female vocal
5- Snappy beat. Simple and catchy.
6- Horns trip around in unsteady rhythm over a spare beat. Tricky and unhurried. Vocals later.
7- (a bit of studio banter)
8- Jazzy motif, grabs you right away. Midtempo, w/ horns up front the whole way. Nice straight sax solo over a guitar riff.
9- Upbeat, popping, fast. Small moans of ecstacy, then vocals in a soulful vein.
10- Snappy and quirky, fast. A light stomp with a sense of humor.
11- Bright, fast swirl; lurking horns for a slow feel
12- Deep gloopy sounds, a bit goofy
