Some of the band(s):
Dan Godston, trumpet (1-6)
Joel Wanek, bass (1-6)
Douglas Ewart, digeridoo (2)
Jerome Breyerton, drums (5,6)
Bruce Eisenbeil, guitar (9,10)
Lisle Ellis, bass (9,10)
1- (1:43) Cool-handed feel, nice bass groove.
2- (7:12) Slow; meditative vibe, w/digeridoo and female spoken word (Mankwe Ndosi). Very AACM.
3- (7:18) Faint spoken word. Nice even-handed jam follows, but just kinds STOPS.
4- (6:34) Quirky New Orleans intro; fast jazz poetry. Hits a PAUSE before blasting off in the second half.
5- (6:06) Midtempo but a nice ignited energy, esp. in the drums. Two-horn cooldown ending, then band intros
6- (5:09) *FCC* Bass pulse, lonely trumpet, far-off metal squeals. Poetry. Ends kind of abruptly.
7- (4:17) Bubbly-smooth space-music intro, into a slow-feeling but bright/active jam
8- (8:50) Squawky horn & electric piano, into a slowly tumbling free jam. Cooks, but sound quality's weak.
9- (3:34) Messy guitar/bass jangle, into some nice jazzy sax work
10- (9:10) Near-psych feel, slowish. Chiming guitar.
11- (14:01) Dramatic and fairly powerful. Groany, soulful slowness, then a good perky sax solo. Then very quiet, builds into a slow, gentle surge.
