Playful jazz, a medium sized combo with lots of horns. Mostly upbeat, but with some free-jazz tendencies -- I'm reminded of old TV jazz with a drunken warble to it. Tracks are upbeat with an almost tropical/calypso feel to the way the horns are written. Quite accessible and nicely creative.|
1- Freeform intro with spoken chatter. Free, grumpy sax solo. Nice midtempo ending phase
2- Upbeat, finger-snappin' goodness.
3- Like a fast magic puppet theme, plus angular jazz lines. Open-ended, avant-garde soloing.
4- Mid/fast, snappy bass/drums with lush horns.
5- Mid/fast, chugging theme.
6- Happy. Kind of like a '50s TV theme, in goofy off-colors. Calm midtempo pace.
7- Drunken sorta-tropical theme. Warbly, playful. Cool exotic flute solo. Ends with chuggy, chattery writing.
8- Free-jazzy. Silly swinging theme; some nice open soloing
9- Lower-key, but fairly fast. Nice post-bop sound, not silly. Drum solo. Angular themes to end it.
10- Upbeat chugging
11- Mysterious and creeping. Growly middle, improvvy.
