Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2008-03-02 
Fairly straight jazz with a bit of old-world European atmosphere and the occasional free-jazz touch. A local band with two woodwind players on many tracks, and lots of use of flute. Some pretty songs here, and a couple of upbeat swingy pieces.

The music was inspired by bassist Bill Noertker's trip to Catalonia, and based on the work of Joan Miro (a sequel to a CD of pieces inspired by Dali).

1- Slow airy flutes; shifts to a catchy riff, then speeds up for a dancing solo segment
2- Soft and pleasant, a bit slow. Warm late-night club vibe
3- Midtempo bebop. Sparse chamber-y middle
4- Slowish cabaret piano, with flute. Some old-world charm
5- Bumpy rhythm, a 3-minute track of free-jazz strangeness
6- Light twisting flutes. Mid/fast, dreamy
7- A rolling swing
8- Slowish sunset feel
